DIYARBAKIR, Turkey- Four civilians were killed and 19 people were wounded by an explosion in the town of Silopi in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast on Monday, security sources said.

Five of the wounded were members of the security forces, the sources said. Silopi, like many towns across the southeast, has been scorched by violence since the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) abandoned its 2-1/2-year ceasefire with the government last year.
