Roadside bomb kills at least 4, injures 13 in Diyarbakir province: official
[Rudaw] An improvised bomb (IED) detonated by a roadside killed at least four villagers and injured 13 others in the Kurdish province of Diyarbakir (Amed) in southeast The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
on Thursday night, according to the provincial governor’s office.

A statement from the governor’s office blamed the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) for the incident.

"A vehicle carrying our villagers from the rural district of Kulp in our province - who had gone out to collect wood - was subjected to a hand-made bomb by the separatist terrorist organization [of the PKK] at 18:00 [Thursday], resulting in the martyrdom of four villagers and the heavy injury of 13 others," read a statement from the office of Diyarbakir governor Hasan Basri.

The PKK has yet to claim or deny responsibility for the earth-shattering kaboom.

nothing needs reforming like other people's bad habits...
PKK-affiliated media outlet ANF put the blast’s corpse count at seven.

Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
called the governor, who briefed the President about the earth-shattering kaboom.

Blaming the PKK, Erdogan said that "all capacity" of the security forces will be used to catch the perpetrators, according to a statement from the Presidency .

Ottoman Turkish forces are currently conducting two wide-scale operations against the PKK: stage three of Operation Claw in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, and Operation Kiran within its borders.

The PKK has said repeatedly that it does not target civilians, but Ottoman Turkish security forces and their accomplices.

The incident comes amid a recent clampdown against the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), which Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) claims is the political wing of the PKK.
