Turkey's Military Raises Number of Wounded in Attack to 47

Tuesday, 12 April 2016 05:21 AM

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's military has raised the number of people wounded in a car bomb attack at a military police station to 47, including eight civilians. A soldier was killed.

The military blamed militants linked to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, for detonating the car bomb near the station and military lodgings in the town of Hani in Diyarbakir province late on Monday. A military statement on Tuesday raised the number of those wounded in the attack from the initial report of 25.

Turkey's southeast has witnessed a surge in violence since July when a fragile peace process between the state and the PKK collapsed. Hundreds of people, including more than 350 security force members, have died in the renewed conflict.

Turkey and its allies consider the PKK a terrorist organization.
