ANKARA - A police compound in the Turkish capital Ankara was struck by three rockets on Friday, Interior Minister Muammer Guler said.

Two buildings belonging to the national police directorate in the district of Dikmen were hit, but no one was hurt, Guler said. A third rocket fell into the grounds.

Dikmen is one of the places across Turkey where anti-government protests have flared in recent months.



The television station NTV said it was not yet known who was behind the attack. Guler said police had found a rocket launcher and material belonging to "an illegal organization" near the scene of the attack.

Left-wing radicals, Islamist extremists and Kurdish militants have all staged attacks in Turkish cities in the past.
