Turkey bomb hurts tourists

Twenty-three people, including 12 foreign tourists, were hurt when three bombs exploded at separate locations in the southern Turkish costal resort of Antalya, AFP reports from Ankara. Police put the blame on the separatist Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK).

The first bomb went off in the garden of the Leta pension, much favoured by German and British visitors, the second and third near vehicles outside the Sheraton hotel. Three of the injured were reported to be in serious condition. Among those hurt were seven Germans, three Swedes and two Finns.
