In a message released on Twitter, the agency said IS radical fighters detonated a car bomb outside the headquarters of the Turkish police in Diyarbakir.
The news agency did not provide further details of the attack, which took place on Friday in a suburb of Diyarbakir near the barracks of the Special Forces police station, according to Turkish authorities. The office of Diyarbakir's provincial governor blamed the attack on the outlawed Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) guerrillas, who frequently carry out car bombs against the buildings or convoys of police in southeastern Turkey.
The explosion followed the arrest of Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag, co-chairs of the leftist and pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) early on Friday. The Turkish authorities arrested some 11 HDP lawmakers for alleged links with PKK guerrillas.
