Female Suicide Bomber Attacks Turks in Kurdistan

A female suicide bomber in Turkish-occupied northern Kurdistan killed three people and wounded around 20 in the town of Bingol on Saturday, Turkish authorities said.

The blast occurred at a tea house close to the local office of the ruling AK Party in the town's main street at around 1:20pm, Interior Minister Idris Naim Sahin said.

Police said the woman had detonated explosives strapped to her body and that they were hunting for another suspected bomber, and a cordon had been thrown round the town, 110 kilometers north of Diyarbakir, northern Kurdistan's main city.
