New York : At least one police officer has been killed and thirteen others injured in a blast in front of the police headquarters in southeastern Turkey on Sunday.

The explosion hit near the station in the city of Gaziantep, CNN quoted foreign news agency as saying.

According to reports, Gaziantep Governor Ali Yerlikaya said that a car bomb caused the explosion.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

Turkey has been hit by increasing violence by both Islamist and nationalist militants.

Last year, more than 200 people across the country were reportedly killed in seven suicide attacks, including an attack this week in the northwest Busra city, which killed the bomber and wounded 13 people. (ANI)
