At least three people were killed and another 120 injured Thursday in a car bomb attack on a police headquarters in eastern Turkey, a local security source said.

The explosion, blamed on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), happened in the garden of the four-storey building in Elazig, a conservative non-Kurdish province which had been spared much of the violence stemming from the conflict between Turkey and Kurdish militants.
