At least one person was killed, and four others wounded when a bomb exploded at a house in the southeastern Diyarbakir province Tuesday evening.
A makeshift bomb made with a gas cylinder caused the blast that occurred at 7 p.m. local time (1700GMT) Tuesday in the central Yenisehir district, according to a statement issued by the governor’s office on Wednesday morning.
Investigators believe that the bomb went off as it was being handled by a young man who was killed in the blast, the statement said. A fingerprint analysis identified the man. Born in 1997, E.Y. had been prosecuted for “engaging in acts on behalf of the terrorist PKK/KCK organization” and “destroying public property”.
The blast also wounded four children aged between 3 and 8, who were hospitalized, the statement added.
