Two road workers were killed in a terrorist attack in eastern Turkey, local authorities said on Monday.

A service vehicle of a construction firm working on the Belbuka Plateau in Catak in the eastern Van province was attacked by PKK terrorists with handmade explosives, according to a statement from the Van Governor's Office.

Two workers were martyred in the attack and eight others were injured, it added.
