Ankara, Turkey (11:50 A.M.) – A massive explosion ripped through the city of Van in Turkey’s eastern countryside, the Dogan News Agency reported this morning.

According to local reports, as many as 11 people were wounded by a car bomb that was detonated some 650 feet away from the provincial administration building in Van’s central district.

No civilians were reportedly killed as a result of this car bombing; however, some of the wounded are currently in critical condition.
