Two bombs target party offices in Turkey
Two small bombs went off Sunday morning outside election offices of Turkey's ruling party and an opposition party in the western city of Izmir, causing damage but no casualties, Anatolia news agency reported.

Police said they believed the blasts were caused by homemade time bombs designed to make loud noise rather than kill, Anatolia said.

The first device exploded outside an election bureau of the far-right Nationalist Action Party in the district of Buca, shattering the windows of nearby buildings.

The second blast went off 10 minutes later in the same street, outside an election bureau of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party, Anatolia said.

There was no immediate word on who might be behind the blasts.
