BROADCAST AND DIGITAL RESTRICTIONS~** Broadcasters: NONE Digital: NONE ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim paid a visit on Friday (January 6) to a man injured after suspected Kurdish militants detonated a car bomb outside Izmir, western Turkey. Two people were killed in the incident and several others injured, officials said. The blast and ensuing clashes occurred after a suspicious vehicle was stopped at a checkpoint outside Izmir's main courthouse. A police officer and a court employee were killed in the attack. Yildirim visited the family and relatives of court employee Musa Can before winding up his visit. The explosion and gunfire in Izmir, Turkey's third largest city, highlighted the country's deteriorating security after a gunman killed 39 people in a New Year's Day mass shooting at an Istanbul nightclub. The PKK is deemed a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States and the European Union. It, along with its affiliates, has been carrying out increasingly deadly attacks over the past year and a half, ever further from the largely Kurdish southeast, where they have fought an insurgency for more than three decades.
