At least one person was killed and 30 injured in a blast outside a police building Friday in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir, the center of the Kurdish minority, medical sources told AFP.

The local governor`s office said in a statement that the cause of the blast "seems to be a car bomb used by members of the separatist terrorist organisation", a reference to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers` Party (PKK).

Both civilians and police were killed and many people were wounded in a car bomb attack in Turkey`s southeastern city of Diyarbakir on Friday, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said in a speech.

Two local residents told AFP they had seen a minibus explode outside the police building in the Baglar district.
