Police kill attacker in Turkey

Turkish police say they have killed an armed man who tried to enter the main police station in the South Eastern city of Gazi­antep.
Mehmet Simsek, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Min­ister, said the attacker was killed but another as­sailant was at large following Tuesday’s incident.
Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra, reporting from Gaziantep, said the attack took place “in an area where ISIL recruits have been very ac­tive in the past”.
“Gaziantep is an area where security forces have been launching crackdowns against ISIL operatives,” he said.
“There were many attacks in the past and peo­ple are still concerned ISIL could launch retali­atory attacks.”
Local television channels reported on Tuesday that a gun battle broke out in front of the building and that ambulances had been sent to the area.
