Bomb blast kills children in Turkey's Sirnak

Baku, November 5, AZERTAC

A bomb blast in the southeastern Turkish province of Sirnak killed at least two children, local officials said on Saturday, according to Al Jazeera.

Four more children were also wounded in the attack, the governor's office said in a statement, which blamed the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) for the explosion.

Earlier on Saturday, authorities appointed a new mayor to the Sirnak municipality.

Turkish authorities have been replacing municipal officials in the mainly Kurdish southeast, accusing them of supporting the PKK.
