Fidayeen Attack Kills Two In Turkey


Ankara: In another attack orchestrated by the Kurdish rebels on Turkish security forces, two soldiers were killed and 25 injured when a suicide bomber rammed an explosive laden truck into a military police station in eastern Turkey.

Militants belonging to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, used two tons of explosives to attack the station on a highway near the town of Dogubayazit in Agri province, near Turkey's border with Iran, causing extensive damage to the building, the regional governor's office said in a statement. The wounded soldiers were hospitalised but there was no word on their conditions.

Violence has flared in Turkey in the past week, shattering a fragile peace process launched in 2012 with the Kurds. The government has conducted almost daily airstrikes at PKK bases in northern Iraq while the rebels have attacked Turkey's security forces.
