Bomb kills two children in Turkey

  • 06/11/2016

Two children have been killed when a bomb planted by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) exploded in the south-eastern Turkish province of Sirnak, the local governor's office says.

Four more children were also wounded in the attack, the governor's office said in a statement after Saturday's blast.

Earlier in the day authorities appointed a new mayor to the Sirnak municipality. Turkish authorities have been replacing municipal officials in the mainly Kurdish southeast, accusing them of supporting the outlawed PKK.
