Blast rocks Kurdish city of Diyarbakir in Turkey
An explosion on Tuesday took place in Turkey’s south eastern city of Diyarbakir that killed one person and wounded several other people. The blast took place few days after a national referendum was held there.
According to the reports the blast took place during the repairing of an armoured vehicle that blew down the compound’s roof, the Diyarbakir governor’s office told the press.
The cause of the blast that took life of one person is still unclear, while the investigation is still underway.
“The blast was in a part of the building for riot police, where maintenance is carried out on vehicles,” governor said during a speech in Istanbul.
“At the moment, it seems there is no outside interference, and the explosion came from the vehicle under repair. One person is trapped under the wreckage,” he said
