Adana governor Mahmut Demirtas told the state-run Anadolu Agency that the attack occurred in a parking lot near the entrance to his office. He said it was believed to have been carried out by a woman, without saying whether it was a suicide attack.

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency reported Thursday night that police removed the suspect’s body from the vehicle before dispatching a remote-controlled bomb disposal robot to defuse explosives still on board the vehicle.

The bombing outside the office of the governor of Adana province was the latest in a string of deadly attacks that have rocked Turkey for more than a year. The attacks have been carried out by Kurdish militants or the Islamic State group.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Thursday’s attack.

The car bomb was detonated remotely at the entrance to the Adana governor’s office, and the governor was the likely target.

The governor, Mahmut Demirtas, said earlier that the attack was believed to have been carried out by a woman.

Several cars in the parking lot caught fire after the blast, video footage showed. The blast also damaged the government building, Anadolu Agency said.

Some of the wounded were in serious condition, said Huseyin Sozlu, the mayor for the city.

“The bomb that was detonated was a high-impact one,” he said.

Energy Minister Berat Albayrak condemned the attack during a news conference in Adana, promising to “bury … those who commit terrorism, their pawns and their supporters.”

Minister of European Union Affairs Omer Celik said police opened fire on a light utility vehicle believed to be carrying the person responsible for the attack in the city of Adana when the driver refused to stop.

“Ultimately, those who committed this heinous act will not get away with it,” Celik said.

“Terror hit my hometown today. Lost 2 citizens, dozens wounded. It is a shame to talk about proportionality against terrorist organizations,” Celik wrote on his Twitter account.

The attack was the latest in a string of deadly bombings that have rocked Turkey for more than a year. The attacks have been carried out by Kurdish militants or the Islamic State group.
