ISTANBUL - Suspected separatist militants threw an explosive device and opened fire on a Turkish police escort, killing one officer, in northern Turkey near where Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan held an election rally on Wednesday.

Erdogan had left by helicopter from the city of Kastamonu by the time the attack happened. Campaigning has begun for a parliamentary election on June 12 that is expected to result in Erdogan winning a third consecutive term.

News channels said two police officers were wounded in the attack which happened as a campaign bus escorted by police vehicles passed through a wooded hilly area on a country road from Kastamonu.
