Turkey Bombing: Blast kills nine, injures 100

A car bomb that was targeting a police station in southeastern Turkey has killed two police officers and seven civilians. 100 other people were injured in the bombing, 93 being released from the hospital so far. ISIS claims the attack which conflicts with a statement made by Turkish officials who blamed the Kurdistan Workers' Party. Buildings and cars were damaged as a result of the bomb going off, and rocked the heavily populated area in which the bomb was set. The explosion came hours after more than a dozen officials from Parliament from a pro-Kurdish party were arrested after failing to respond to summons that were officiated to them. This explosion also comes days after the first female mayor and her co-mayor were detained as well. Both were detained on terror charges, and social media is being blocked right now.
