Two Blasts in Southern Turkish Resort Wound Six


Turkish media are reporting that two bombs have exploded in the southern Turkish resort city of Antalya, wounding at least six people.

Turkey's Anatolia news agency says the explosions Tuesday were in two different locations, but occurred just minutes apart.

One of the bombs was planted in a trash can that exploded as workers were emptying it.

Anatolia reports that the second blast also came from a trash can and wounded three people, including a tourist.

It is unclear who planted the bombs.

Kurdish rebels from the banned Kurdistan Workers Party have recently launched several attacks on Turkish resort towns.

Other terrorist attacks in the country have been blamed on Islamic terrorists.

Antalya, on Turkey's Mediterranean coast, is a popular vacation resort.

Some information for this report provided by Reuters.
