Turkey-PKK conflict: Eight killed in twin bomb blasts
Kurdish PKK rebels have carried out two bomb attacks on police vehicles in the mainly Kurdish south-east of Turkey, killing at least eight people and wounding many more, officials say.
Three died and 25 others were injured in a blast in the town of Kiziltepe.
In Diyarbakir, a car bomb killed at least five civilians and wounded 12 others.
Clashes between Turkey's security forces and the PKK resumed last year, ending a ceasefire.
Since then, south-east Turkey has seen its worst violence in 20 years.
