HAKKARI, Turkey 

At least one person was martyred on Sunday in a roadside bomb explosion in Turkey’s southeastern Hakkari province, authorities said. 

In a statement, the provincial governor’s office said a vehicle was passing through the Catalca neighborhood in Semdinli district when the bomb planted by PKK terrorists went off.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women, children and infants.
