2 police killed in car bomb attack in southeastern Turkey


ANKARA:Kurdish rebels on Friday detonated a car bomb near a police station in southeastern Turkey, killing two police officers and seriously wounding at least four people, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

The attack targeted the traffic police station and lodgings in the town of Nusaybin, bordering Syria, where the security forces are battling militants linked to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK.

A fragile two-year-old peace process between Turkey’s government and the PKK collapsed in July, reviving a three-decades-old conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people. Hundreds — many of them police and soldiers — have died in the renewed fighting.

 The agency says the four wounded people are in serious condition.
