A suicide bomber flashed the "V" for victory sign before detonating bombs strapped to her body outside a Turkish police station, killing herself and injuring 17 others. It was the third major attack blamed on guerrillas since a Turkish court sentenced Kurdish rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan to death June 29 for treason and separatism. Police said three civilians and 14 officers were hurt in the attack in the southern city of Adana. The assailant was identified as Rusen Tabanci, 19. The Anatolian news agency said she was a Kurdish rebel sought by security forces.
