Car bomb hits police vehicle in Turkish city of Diyarbakir, 13 wounded: officials

A car bomb struck an armored police vehicle on Tuesday in the Turkish city of Diyarbakir, located in the mainly Kurdish southeast, wounding 13 people, security officials said.
A Reuters witness heard a large explosion in the city center, followed by the wail of ambulance sirens after the attack. Parts of Diyarbakir have seen intense security operations since a three-decade conflict between the state and Kurdish militants reignited in July 2015.
