Topic: Two dead, 100 hurt in blasts at Kurdish rally in Turkey


By Seyhmus Cakan DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Two blasts ripped through a Kurdish rally in Turkey on Friday, killing two people and injuring more than 100 in what President Tayyip Erdogan described as a "provocation" designed to undermine peace before Sunday's parliamentary election. Initial reports said there had been one explosion but a senior security source told Reuters there were two blasts. Eyewitness Guy Martin, a British photographer, told Reuters the blasts occurred some five minutes apart - the first in a rubbish bin which was ripped apart and the second in front a power generator.
