Eight injured in car bomb attack in south-east Turkey

Eight people have been injured in a car bomb attack targeting a police vehicle in south-east Turkey.

The state-run Anadolu Agency said the attack was carried out by militants of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, who detonated the bomb as the armoured police vehicle travelled through the town of Dicle.

The agency said two police officers are among the injured and one of them is in a serious condition.

The PKK, which has led a three-decade insurgency in Turkey's mainly Kurdish south-east region, is considered a terror organisation by Turkey and its allies.

The region was again plunged into violence last summer after peace efforts between the state and the PKK collapsed.
