Five killed in clash in Turkey`s southeast

An official says four Kurdish rebels are killed after they attacked a Turkish military station on the Iraqi border.



Ankara: An official says four Kurdish rebels are killed after they attacked a Turkish military station on the Iraqi border.

Gov Muammer Turker of Hakkari province says one soldier
has been killed and six soldiers have been wounded when the
rebels raided the border post near the town of Cukurca today.

Turker says Turkish troops chased the rebels after their
hour long attack on the military outpost and killed four of
them.

The attack comes less than a week after Turkish warplanes
bombed three suspected Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq,
used by the rebels to stage hit and run attacks on Turkish
targets.

The rebels have been fighting for autonomy in Turkey`s
Kurdish-dominated southeast since 1984. Tens of thousands of
people have died in that conflict.
