At least 11 people were killed and 78 wounded in a blast at a police headquarters in the Turkish town of Cizre in the largely Kurdish south-east, 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, 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.
