Car bomb outside security headquarters in Şemdinli

Four soldiers, three police officers and 16 civilians were injured when a car bomb went off outside security headquarters in the southeast Turkish town Şemdinli, on the mountainous border with Iraq and Iran at 11.30 p.m. on Tuesday, said security officials. The bomb is believed to be the work of known terrorist group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

CNN Turk reported that none of the casualties were seriously hurt and they were being treated in a local hospital.

The car, parked near a police station in Semdinli, in the province of Hakkari, "was loaded with a large amount of explosives by members of the PKK terrorist organization," the Hakkari governor's office said.

 Security forces set up checkpoints at the entrances to the border town, where power has been cut since the blast, CNN Türk said.

 Some 67 houses and workplaces suffered damaged.

 "We ask our people and the authorities to be vigilant on the subject of terror activities," the governor's statement said.
