DIYARBAKIR (Agencies) At least 10 people were killed and three wounded when an explosive device ripped apart their minibus in southeast Turkey on Thursday, local officials said. The blast occurred near the village of Gecitli in Hakkari province near the borders with Iraq and Iran. Resul Kaya, mayor of the nearby town of Durankaya, told reporters 10 people died when the minibus hit a landmine. Security officials said it was a remote-controlled explosive device left in the road. Separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants have frequently carried out similar attacks in the past. However, such attacks are generally on military targets and the PKK declared a ceasefire last month, which is not due to expire until September 20.
