7 people killed in a result of explosion in Turkey

A car bomb exploded near a police station in southeast Turkey on Monday night, killing at least eight people and wounding dozens, Turkish media reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast in Gaziantep, near the Syrian border. Kurdish militants are active in the area, and the fight between Turkish security forces and Kurdish rebels, who seek autonomy in Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeast, has intensified in recent weeks, the USA Today reported.
