Turkish police officers and members of rescue services work at a destroyed police station in Cinar, in the mostly-Kurdish Diyarbakir province in southeastern Turkey Authorities have since imposed extended curfews in flashpoint neighbourhoods and towns in the mainly Kurdish-populated southeast region of the country as the security forces battle Kurdish militants who are linked to the PKK. Those militants have mounted barricades, dug trenches and set up explosives to keep authorities away. The operations have resulted in more than a hundred civilian casualties, and displaced thousands, human rights groups say. The attack killed two people at the police lodgings and three people died inside the collapsed house. Another police station was also attacked with rocket launchers in Midyat town, in the province of Mardin, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported, in what appeared to be a simultaneous assault. No casualties were reported there
