    Two people have been wounded in explosions at Turkey's justice ministry and the headquarters of the governing AK Party, reports say.

    A rocket hit the seventh floor of the AK building, while a bomb was thrown at the ministry, local media say.

    Police are said to have made two arrests but no group has said it carried out the attacks.

    Kurdish rebels, left-wing groups and Islamist militants have previously bombed targets in Turkey.

    The latest blasts follow a police crackdown on a banned Marxist group.

    They also come amid reports of a deal between the government and jailed Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan.
