Smoke rises from buildings at the site of a car bomb explosion at a police headquarters in CizreISTANBUL (Reuters) - At least 11 people were killed and 78 wounded in a blast at a police headquarters in Turkish town of Cizre in the largely Kurdish southeast, broadcaster NTV reported. NTV did not cite a source for the casualty figures.
