MADRID, Sep. 13 (EUROPE PRESS) –
At least seven people have died and another ten have been injured this Friday because of an explosion in Diyarbakir province in southeastern Turkey.
The governor's office in the aforementioned province, which has confirmed that the incident has occurred in the Kulp district, has indicated that an improvised explosive device would have exploded when a vehicle passed along the road.
In the vehicle were dozens of residents of the area, as reported by Anatolia news agency. It is believed that the explosives would have been placed by members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which Ankara considers a terrorist organization.
“The bloody PKK terrorist organization once again showed its worst face in the Kulp district of Diyarbakir. Innocent citizens were killed in an evil attack on God. I send my condolences to their families,” said the leader of the opposition Republican Party del Pueblo (CHP), Kemal Kiliçdaroglu, on his Twitter account. The president of the Turkish Parliament, Mustafa Sentop, has also condemned the attack.
