One killed, two injured as PKK attacks civilian car

19 September 2012, Wednesday / TODAYSZAMAN.COM
At least one person was killed and two others were injured after a group of terrorists opened fire on a civilian car that defied a Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) roadblock in the southeastern Turkish province of Diyarbakır.

The private Cihan news agency reported that Deniz Gül, who was driving the car near Topçular village, 15 kilometers from the village of Hani, along with Ziya Özkılıç and an unidentified third person, refused to stop after terrorists from the PKK demanded they do so.  

The PKK terrorists opened fire on the car, killing Özkılıç and injuring the two others.

The terrorists escaped the scene, and the injured were taken to Diyarbakır Dicle University Hospital.
