Reports: Kurdish Militant Dies as Bomb Explodes Prematurely

Wednesday, 29 March 2017 05:51 AM

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish media reports say a suspected Kurdish militant was killed when a bomb he was preparing inside a car exploded prematurely. A second suspected militant inside the vehicle was wounded.

The private DHA news agency said the explosion occurred early on Wednesday in the town of Buca, in the Aegean coastal province of Izmir.

The militants were allegedly on a mission to place hand-made bombs in Buca — one of which exploded in a trash can 20 minutes after the explosion inside the car, the agency said.

DHA said the militants are believed to be members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which has led a three-decade long insurgency in southeast Turkey.

Security officials in Izmir couldn't immediately be reached.
