ISTANBUL (AP) -- Turkish media reports say seven people have died in a bomb explosion near a police station in a southeastern city.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast Monday night in Gaziantep, near the Syrian border. Television footage showed firefighters attempting to douse a fierce blaze that gutted several vehicles.
Fighting between Turkish security forces and Kurdish rebels, who seek autonomy in Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeast, has increased in recent weeks.
