Turkey car bomb attack kills two police, wounds 35: security sources

A car bomb and rocket attack by Kurdish militants in Turkey killed two police officers and wounded 35 people in the southeastern province of Mardin on Friday, security sources said.

The bomb blast, blamed on Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants, caused significant damage to a traffic police station and neighboring housing in the town of Nusaybin, near the Syrian border, the sources told Reuters.

A clash broke out between police and militants after the explosion, which occurred around 6 a.m. (0400 GMT). Security force reinforcements, along with ambulances and fire engines, were sent to the area, the sources said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
