One child was killed and four were injured in a blast as they played with explosives they had found near a barracks in southeastern Turkey, a local official told Reuters on Tuesday.

Ozalp district mayor Murat Durmaz said the explosion occurred just outside a firing range in the province of Van, near the border with Iran.

State-run Anatolian news agency said four children had been injured and were taken to nearby hospitals.

Southeast Turkey is the scene of a conflict between state security forces and PKK militants.
