Istanbul (dpa) - The airport in the city of Diyarbakir in south-east Turkey was attacked with grenades during the night, with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) suspected of being behind the attack, DHA news agency reported Sunday.
The grenades had been aimed at police positions, but missed and landed on open ground, DHA reported.
Shrapnel shattered some window panes in the entrance area of the airport, but there were no injuries, according to the authorities.
The airport was closed briefly to air traffic following the attack, DHA said. Panic broke out among passengers who had disembarked from a flight from Istanbul shortly before the attack.
The provincial government said it had launched a large-scale search operation for the perpetrators.
The PKK, which regularly attacks police and military targets in the mostly Kurdish south-east, has recently intensified its activities.
On Friday in the city of Cizre in Sirnak province it killed 11 police officers and injured 75 others in a car-bomb attack.
