DUSHANBE-- A three-year-old boy has been killed and at least 15 people injured in a car bomb attack in south-eastern Turkey, the Independent reports.

The bomb exploded near the homes of judges and prosecutors in the town of Viransehir, in Sanliurfa province, which borders Syria.

Sanliurfa governor Gungor Azim Tuna said that a young man parked the explosives-laden vehicle near the properties and later detonated it with a remote-controlled device.

The attack killed the three-year-old son of a court clerk, he said.

Around 15 people were taken to hospital but none of them was in a serious condition, Mr Tuna said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
