ISTANBUL (Reuters) – An explosion shook the governor’s office building in the southern Turkish city of Adana on Thursday, wounding five people, one of them seriously, television channel CNN Turk reported.

It broadcast video footage of a vehicle ablaze in the car park outside the office and thick black smoke rising into the sky in the city, around 40 km (25 miles) from Turkey’s eastern Mediterranean coast.

Ambulances were set to the scene, it said. It was not clear what caused the blast.

Kurdish, Islamist and leftist militants have all carried out bomb attacks in Turkey in recent years.
