Gov. Ozdemir Cakacak of the city of Van says the attack late on Monday did not cause any injuries. "After we inspect cameras in the area we will have more information. The explosion caused little damage, but the investigation is continuing," Cakacak was quoted as saying by the state-run Anatolian Agency.

News wires reported the explosion could have been caused by a percussion bomb, a type of explosive that creates a large noise, but usually causes little damage. No groups claimed the responsibility.

This was the latest attack targeted the AKP office. Recently AKP's headquarter in Istanbul was targeted, leaving four people injured.
