Turkish Troops Kill Four Kurdish Rebels


Turkey's military says troops killed four Kurdish guerrillas in operations Friday night near the border with northern Iraq.

Military authorities said Saturday the clash occurred in southeastern Hakkari province.

The banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has been fighting for autonomy for ethnic Kurds in Turkey's southeast since 1984. More than 30,000 people have been killed in the conflict.
