diyarbakir-bombA deadly car-bomb explosion at the Turkish city of Diyarbakir killed one and wounded 30 more people on 4th November, Friday.

 

 

Right after the arrests of two leaders of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) and around 11 MPs, the car bomb was planted as a protest by the militants.

 

 

As a part of the counter terrorism investigation, the leaders Selahattin Demirtas or ‘the Kurdish Obama’ and Figen Yuksekdag were arrested from their houses in Ankara.

 

 

The fatal blast occurred around 8 am local time on 4th November, near the provincial governor’s office situated in Diyarbakir. The authorities believed that the car bomb was planted by the Kurdistan Workers party (PKK), which claimed one life and endangered the lives of another 30 people.

 

 

It was found from the security sources that the bomb went off closer to a police station in the Baglar district. The intensity of the blast tore off parts of the nearby building.

 

 

The emergency officials are still searching under the debris to rescue the trapped people. The death toll and the number of injured people may rise later.

 

 

Turkey has been put under a state of emergency since July’16 after a failed coup attempt. The repetitive terror attacks and unrest is forcing the tourism sector of the country to take a hit. At present, the travellers are avoiding Turkey, which used to be a popular tourist destination previously.
