Suicide attack in Turkey: Two soldiers dead, 24 wounded

Ankara: Officials say two soldiers have been killed and 24 others wounded in a suicide attack by Kurdish rebels in eastern Turkey.

The governor's office for Agri province says Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, militants attacked a military police station with an agricultural vehicle laden with explosives early today.

The attack comes amid an escalation of violence between the government and the Kurdish rebels, with Turkey conducting almost daily airstrikes at PKK bases in northern Iraq, and the rebels attacking security forces.

Some 24 people have been killed in the renewed violence, most of them soldiers.
