Blast injures 9 Turks

ISTANBUL, Sept 17 (KUNA) -- At least nine Turkish people including six police officers were injured on Friday when a landmine went off near Durankaya town in the southeastern province of Hakkari.
The blast took place in Yuksekova district following a funeral for two people who were killed Thursday in a separate bomb attack in the same province, Turkey's Anatolia News Agency reported.
The victims were rushed to a nearby hospital as law-enforcement services started a probe into the attack.
Hakkari is located in the restive mainly-Kurdish area bordering Iran where the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) has been waging a secessionist war against the Turkish state since 1984. (end) ta.gb KUNA 172112 Sep 10NNNN
