Car bomb at­tack in south­ern city kills 2 and wounds 33

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION + WORLD -

A car bomb at­tack Thurs­day tar­get­ing a gov­ern­ment build­ing in the south­ern Turk­ish city of Adana killed at least two peo­ple and wounded 33 oth­ers, a se­nior cab­i­net of­fi­cial said.

En­ergy Min­is­ter Berat Al­bayrak con­demned the at­tack dur­ing a news con­fer­ence in Adana, promis­ing to “bury ... those who com­mit ter­ror­ism, their pawns and their sup­port­ers.”

The at­tack was the lat­est in a string of deadly bomb­ings that have rocked Turkey for more than a year. The at­tacks have been car­ried out by Kur­dish mil­i­tants or the Is­lamic State group.

Adana gover­nor Mah­mut Demir­tas told the state-run Anadolu Agency that the at­tack oc­curred in a park­ing lot near the en­trance to his of­fice.

He said it was be­lieved to have been car­ried out by a woman, with­out say­ing whether it was a sui­cide at­tack.
