Car explodes outside barracks in Turkey's Iskenderun port

ISTANBUL - A car exploded outside a military barracks in the Turkish port town of Iskenderun on Thursday, injuring four people, in what a local news agency said was a bomb attack.
The Dogan news agency said the car, which was packed with explosives, blew up 150 meters from the entrance to the barracks shortly before a military vehicle had been due to pass and that the blast injured at least three passengers in a civilian car.
"There was an explosion and we can confirm four people are slightly injured. The cause is still under investigation," Ragip Kilic, police chief in Hatay province, told Reuters.
