    At least 11 people were killed and 78 wounded in a blast at a police headquarters in Turkish town of Cizre in the largely Kurdish southeast, broadcaster NTV reported.

    NTV did not cite a source for the casualty figures.

    The state-run Anadolu news agency blamed the attack on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a militant group that has waged a three-decade insurgency for Kurdish autonomy and has been involved in almost daily clashes with security forces since a ceasefire collapsed more than a year ago.

    Looks like the purge which Erdo carried out has considerably weakened Turkeys domestic intelligence and security capabilities. Turkey is being bombed everyday, from wedding halls to police stations to military. Looks like the Karma of supporting Rebels and ISIS in Syria is coming to bite them back...

    Turkey is close to Pakistan. I think that they have nothing to gain by remaining as an ally to pakistan. I hope that now Turkey will understand that they will loose and only loose by remaining near to a country like Pakistan. Turkey will drop pakistan.
