Diyarbakir, Turkey, car bomb damages police personnel.

Diyarbakir, Turkey, car bomb damages police personnel.

According to Turkish officials, a car bomb exploded as a minibus carrying Turkish police passed it on a highway in the province of Diyarbakir, in the country's southeast.

Suleyman Soylu, the interior minister of Turkey, reported that an explosion occurred in a parked car at 5:10 am (02:10 GMT) while a police car was leaving for work in Diyarbakir.

He stated that two guys who are thought to be the blast's perpetrators have been taken into custody.

The Diyarbakir governor's office reported that no one was seriously injured by the explosion, but nine passengers in the armored minibus were transported to the hospital for examinations.

The largest city in southeast Turkey, Diyarbakir, was the location of the explosion, which happened close to a cattle market about 10 kilometers south of the city's center.

No one immediately took blame. In the past, bomb attacks in Turkey have been carried out by Kurdish, Marxist, and ISIL (ISIS) forces.

Last month, a bombing in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, left dozens of people injured and six dead. A Syrian woman was among the dozens of people held as suspects.

Although no group has claimed credit, Turkey has blamed PKK fighters for the explosion.

Both the PKK and the People's Protection Units (YPG), which Turkey considers to be its offshoot in Syria, denied involvement.

In 1984, the PKK began an armed rebellion against the Turkish government that was mostly centered in Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeast. In the fight, more than 40,000 individuals have died.

It is considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the European Union and the United States.

Despite open objections from the US and Russia, Turkey has frequently threatened to begin a new military ground campaign in northern Syria that would target the YPG.

It has been conducting operations against the PKK in northern Iraq as well as aerial bombing of YPG and YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces locations in northern Syria.
