PanARMENIAN.Net - A suspected suicide bomber detonated explosives
inside a car outside a police station in the central Turkish province
of Kayseri on Friday, May 25 killing himself and a police officer
and wounding some 20 others, Reuters reported citing Turkish media.

Kurdish separatists, Islamist militants, including al Qaeda, as well
as groups on the far left and right have all carried out bomb attacks
in Turkey, but there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Broadcaster NTV said the bomber had tried to drive his car into
the police station moments before the blast took place. At least
19 people were wounded in the attack, six of them seriously, other
media reported.

NTV said a second assailant was also involved. Reuters could not
immediately confirm any of the details surrounding the attack which
took place in the town of Pinarbasi east of Kayseri city. Kayseri
province is located some 325 km (200 miles) southeast of the Turkish
capital Ankara.

Television footage showed frantic scenes around the police station
in Pinarbasi with fire engines and ambulances rushing to the site of
the blast.
