A local official claimed Thursday that two families feuding over agricultural property in Turkey’s Kurdish-majority southeast shot and killed eight people.
An AFP correspondent in Diyarbakir reported the gunfire set fire to the disputed fields, which spread on Thursday.
Officials said three violence survivors were hospitalized and security was increased across the province.
Agriculture-dependent Southeast property disputes are widespread.
Diyarbakir governor Ali Ihsan Su claimed the contested grounds were 200,000 square metres (50 acres).
