A large explosion on Monday that rocked the city of Van in Turkey's restive southeast targeted the provincial offices of the ruling AK Party and wounded 11 people, an AKP lawmaker told broadcaster CNN Turk.

The channel showed footage of smoke rising from a building and firefighters spraying a hose to extinguish a fire.

Turkey's restive southeast has suffered from bombings and other attacks after the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) abandoned a ceasefire in 2015.

There were no fatalities, parliamentarian Burhan Kayaturk also told CNN Turk in comments broadcast live. He said the AKP building was well-secured and did not suffer much damage.
