( Ihlas ) - An explosion occurred on Friday in the centre of Diyarbakir, a pre-dominantly Kurdish southeastern Turkish city, leaving a number of people injured.
The cause of the blast was not immediately clear, but security sources said it could be a bomb.
Diyarbakir, a city of around one million people, is a hotbed of Kurdish separatist militancy.
The outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) took up arms for Kurdish self-rule in the southeast in 1984. The conflict has claimed more than 37,000 lives.
