Turkey car bomb kills a child and injures over 5 people
BBC – A child was killed and at least 15 people injured in a large car bomb blast in a town in southern Turkey, a regional governor says.
The explosion targeted a building housing judges and prosecutors in Viransehir, in Sanliurfa province, which borders Syria.
Provincial governor Gungor Azim Tuna told the state news agency Anadolu that a child aged three had been killed.
Turkish cities and towns have been hit by several attacks in the past year.
Anadolu quoted Mr Tuna as saying that the bomb, which exploded at 20:45 local time (17:45 GMT), was detonated by remote control, after a man in his late teens or early 20s had left the car.
