DIYARBAKIR, Turkey An explosion apparently caused by an electrical fault injured several people at an opposition party rally in Turkey's mainly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir on Friday, days before parliamentary elections.

Television footage showed people being carried out on stretchers as organizers of the rally for the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) announced on loudspeakers that the explosion had been caused by a fault in a power generator and urged people to stay calm.
