    Three of four terrorists who conducted Wednesday's attack on a police shuttle bus in Diyarbakir have been arrested on Thursday, the state-run Anatolian Agency reported. (UPDATED)

    The suspects were taken to the provincial department of security for questioning, the agency said.

    Police continue operations to capture another suspect, who is believed to be responsible for planning the bloody attack, it added.

    All the suspects are believed to be members of the terrorist organization PKK, and police say some of them came in from the group's camps in neighboring northern Iraq specifically for the attack.

    Four police, and a civilian driver were killed and 18 others injured in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir, when unknown assailants with guns and explosives attacked a police vehicle.     

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