Two die as Turkish forces, Kurd rebels clash-source 27 Jul 2004


DIYARBAKIR, Turkey, July 27 (Reuters) - Two members of the Turkish security forces were killed in a clash with Kurdish guerrillas in a remote area of southeast Turkey, a military source said on Tuesday.

Security forces, including members of a state-sponsored village militia, engaged a group of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebels late on Monday in Bingol province.

One gendarme and a member of the village militia were killed in the clash. Four village guards were injured. An operation to track down the militants was continuing, the source said.

The PKK launched an armed separatist campaign in mainly Kurdish southeast Turkey in 1984 and more than 30,000 people have been killed in the violence.

Fighting subsided after the capture in 1999 and then conviction of rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan, who had declared a unilateral ceasefire before his detention, but it has flared again since June when the guerrillas ended the truce.
