Several hurt in car bomb attack on police station in Turkey

ISTANBUL (AP) -

Turkey's state-run news agency says several people were wounded in a car bomb attack in a mainly Kurdish region in southeastern Turkey.

The Anadolu Agency said "terrorists" affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, attacked a police station Monday night in the town of Hani in the Diyarbakir region.

The agency reported that ambulances took wounded victims to the Diyarbakir Military Hospital, but did not indicate how many people were hurt.

Turkey's southeast has witnessed a surge in violence since July when a fragile peace process between the state and Kurdish militants collapsed.

The military has carried out sweeping operations in the southeast, including in Diyarbakir, to flush out fighters linked to the outlawed PKK.

Turkey and its allies consider the PKK, which fought a decades-long insurgency against the Turkish state, a terrorist organization.
