Text size Aa Aa

In Turkey at least eight people have been killed in an explosion that ripped apart a minibus and left three people including a baby injured.
 
All were travelling in the minibus.  It is not clear if the blast occurred inside the vehicle or if it had run over a mine.
  
It happened in the southeast of the country when the minibus was passing through the village of Gecitli near the borders with Iraq and Iran. 
  
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
 
Last month, the separatist Kurdistan Workers Party declared a ceasefire in the region after many years of violence.
 
It is not due to expire for another four days.
