Suspected Kurdish guerrillas set off an explosive-laden minibus across from a police guest house in eastern Turkey, injuring 17 people on Saturday, the governor's office said. The Ford minibus parked across from the police guest house, went off in eastern city of Igdir on the Armenian border, the governor's office announced. Two of the injured were in serious condition, he said. "Thank God, we don't have any loss," Dogan quoted Deputy Gov. Mehmet Yilmaz as saying. The explosion coincided with complaints by imprisoned rebel chief Abdullah Ocalan about his prison conditions, which were relayed by his lawyers, the pro-Kurdish news agency Firat reported on its Web site on Saturday.
