2 killed, 16 hurt in Turkey blast

Two persons were killed when a car exploded early on Thursday outside a government building in the southern Turkish city of Adana, officials said.

“Two persons were killed and 16 were wounded,” the governor of Adana, Mahmut Demirtas, was quoted as saying by the state-run news agency Anadolu.

The blast, which occurred outside the governor’s office, is the latest in a wave of violence striking Turkey, whose government is fighting both Kurdish militants and jihadists. “A vehicle blew up at 8.05am (0505 GMT) at a parking lot next to the entrance of the governor’s office,” Demirtas said.

The attack is believed to have been carried out by a woman, the governor said, without providing further details.
