At least 11 police officers dead and 78 injured after 'car bomb attack' rocks checkpoint in southeastern Turkey

At least eight police officers were killed and 70 injured when suspected Kurdish militants attacked a police checkpoint in south-east Turkey with an explosives-laden truck.
    
The attack struck the checkpoint some 50 yards from a main police station near the town of Cizre, in the mainly Kurdish Sirnak province which borders Syria, the Anadolu Agency reported.
     The three-storey police station was destroyed in the powerful explosion.
     News channel NTV showed large plumes of smoke billowing from the site, which it said was a police checkpoint.
     At least two of the wounded were in a critical condition, an official said. The Health Ministry said it had sent 12 ambulances and two helicopters to the scene.
