ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey's state-run news agency says two homemade pipe bombs exploded at a cafe in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir

Anadolu Agency says the explosives were thrown Saturday by two children around about 12 or 13 years old during a performance by singer Aleyna Tilki. Six people were injured, none seriously.

"As long as our flag waves in the air, we are everywhere. There is no east or west. Our people, our country, need a lot of motivation," the 16-year-old singer tweeted on Sunday.

Turkey has suffered several deadly bomb attacks in the past 18 months, carried out by Kurdish militants or the Islamic State group.
