Aankara: More than 100 Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants were either killed or wounded in clashes with Turkish security forces on Saturday, the military said,

It was one of the highest casualty tolls in a single day of the conflict in recent years.

The military said in a statement that more than 100 PKK militants had been "neutralised" in clashes, without specifying how many were killed and how many wounded. Most had been taken back to northern Iraq, where the PKK has mountain camps.
