At least one person was killed and two others were injured after a group of PKK militants opened fire on a civilian car that defied a outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) roadblock in the southeastern Turkish province of Diyarbakır.
The private Cihan news agency reported that Deniz Gül, who was driving the car near Topçular village, 15 kilometers from the village of Hani, along with Ziya Özkılıç and an unidentified third person, refused to stop after militants from the PKK demanded they do so.
The PKK opened fire on the car, killing Özkılıç and injuring the two others.
The militants escaped the scene, and the injured were taken to Diyarbakır Dicle University Hospital.
