At least eight people were killed and dozens wounded, including police officers, after a car bomb believed to have been planted by Kurdish separatists exploded close to a police station in the southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep, security sources said.
Erdal Ata, Gaziantep's governor, said at a press conference earlier that seven people has been confirmed dead.
Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker, reporting from Antakya in Turkey's southeast, said the casualty toll was likely to rise.
"The bombing occurred on a busy street, very close to a bus station. We are hearing of eight people dead and 50 injured. Most people who were hurt were in their cars or getting on buses near the scene of the explosion," Dekker said.
The explosion on Monday was caused by a remote-controlled car bomb, Dogan quoted Ata as saying.
