On July 30, Terrorists attacked the Ankara-Tehran train in Turkey’s Bingol province.
According to Hurriyet daily website, the attack took place in Ganch region of Turkey’s Bingol province and in relation to a mine explosion.
Salim Kusshgar, the governor-general of Bingol province, said that the Ankara-Tehran passenger train, called the Trans Asia Train, was attacked by the PKK terrorist group.
