The city is near the country’s Kurdish area and suspicion will automatically fall upon Kurdish rebel group the PKK.

Fighting between Turkish troops and the PKK has escalated in recent months.

Turkish TV stations showed shaky footage of workers trying to put out fires in two burnt-out vehicles.

Reports said the vehicles were blown up by remote detonation.
