Four rockets were fired at Diyarbakir Airport in south-east Turkey by suspected Kurdish militants, causing airport staff and passenger took shelter inside the airport’s terminal building for safety, according to Dogan news agency.

The intended target of the heavy bombardment was a police checkpoint located near the VIP lounge, added the agency. The shelling missed, with rockets landing on wasteland close around midnight (local time) on Saturday, 27 August, said broadcaster NTV.
