ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A large explosion on Monday that rocked the city of Van in Turkey's restive southeast targeted the provincial offices of the ruling AK Party and wounded 11 people, an AKP lawmaker told broadcaster CNN Turk.

There were no fatalities, parliamentarian Burhan Kayaturk also told CNN Turk in comments broadcast live. He said the AKP building was well-secured and did not suffer much damage.
