Five Soldiers, One Police Killed In Turkey Bomb Attack

At least six people, five soldiers and a police officer, have been killed, following a bomb attack, in southeast Turkey.

Five Turkish soldiers and one special forces police officer have died in a bomb attack in the country’s southeastern Mardin province, reports say.

Turkey’s Dogan news agency said Kurdish militant group the PKK was responsible.

The victims were said to be taking part in an anti-PKK military operation in the city of Nusaybin, which has been under curfew since mid-March.

Authorities say the PKK has dug trenches and put up barricades around Nusaybin.

The attack comes just two days after seven police officers were killed and 27 others wounded in a car bomb attack on a police bus in the main south-eastern city of Diyarbakir.
