A car bomb attack hit a military police station on Monday night in a mainly Kurdish region in southeastern Turkey, killing one person and injuring more than two dozen others, according to Turkish media reports.

The state-run Anadolu news agency said “terrorists” affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, carried out the bombing in the town of Hani in the Diyarbakir region.

The bombing killed one soldier and wounded 25 others, according to the Anadolu report.

Helicopters and ambulances took the victims to the Diyarbakir Military Hospital.

The private Dogans news agency also reported one fatality but said 27 people, including some civilians, had been wounded in the attack.

Nearby buildings were damaged by the blast and power lines were down.

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