    Four police, and a civilian driver were killed and 19 others injured in southeastern Turkey when unknown assailants with guns and explosives attacked a police vehicle, Interior Minister Besir Atalay said. (UPDATED)

    Unknown assailants with guns and explosives attacked a police bus in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir, killing four policemen and injuring several others.        

    The attack came as lawmakers debate whether to extend the Turkish military's mandate to carry out cross-border operations against PKK terrorists in northern Iraq.

    The police shuttle bus was carrying personnel working at the Ali Gaffar Okkan Police Career Academy.

    CNN Turk said hand grenades were also used in the attack.
