An attack by Kurdish militants is believed to have killed a Turkish police officer and wounded two others.
Two suspected female militants opened fire on police in southern Turkey late Monday, according to Ankara.
The perpetrator, who reportedly belonged to the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), later committed suicide by detonating a suicide bomb.
Turkey’s interior ministry said the attack took place in the Mejitri district of Mersin province on the Mediterranean coast.
Interior Minister Suleiman Soylu told reporters that two suspects opened fire on police guarding the hotel, who sparked a shootout.
One police officer was killed, while a second officer and a civilian on a nearby balcony were injured in the clash.
The PKK is considered a terrorist organization in Turkey, Europe and the United States.
It led an armed rebellion against Ankara in 1984, leaving tens of thousands of people dead in the conflict.
