A roadside bomb has killed at least five policemen and three civilians in southeastern Turkey.
The bomb, on a road in the Guroymak district of Bitlis province, exploded Tuesday as a police vehicle was passing by. The civilian victims included a young girl. Three other people were seriously hurt.
Authorities suspect Kurdish separatists were behind the attack. Security forces have been combing the area in search of the assailants, who are believed to be members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK.
