12 wounded in bomb attack on police vehicle in southern Turkey

Twelve people were wounded in a bomb attack on a police vehicle in Turkey’s southern Mersin province today, Turkish broadcaster NTV said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Police vehicles, including transport buses, are frequent targets for Kurdish militants.

Mersin is a port city in southern Turkey on the Mediterranean coast. The province, which lies along the Syria-Turkey border, has one of the highest populations of Syrians in Turkey.

Turkey has experienced a string of recent terrorist attacks — including inside Istanbul, the country’s commercial capital – over the years.
