CAR BOMB KILLS 2 AND INJURES ONE IN SOUTH EAST TURKEY

ANKARA, -- Two police officers and one civilian were killed when a car bomb detonated near a traffic police station in Turkey's southeastern province of Diyarbakir, local media reported.

Twenty-five people, including eight police, were also wounded in that blast at the police station in Sukurlu, a village in Diyarbakir, Dogan News Agency reported.

Militants from the outlawed Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) conducted the attack, State-run Anadolu Agency said.

Over 500 members of Turkish security forces and thousands of PKK members have been killed in confrontations inside Turkey and northern Iraq since last July.

More than 40,000 people have lost their lives in clashes with the PKK since 1984, when the group first started anti-government attacks.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union and Turkey.
