Mine kills 2 soldiers, driver in southeast Turkey 28.5.2005

 

DIYARBAKIR, Turkey, May 27 (Reuters) 15:45:59 GMT - Two Turkish soldiers and a driver were killed when a tractor carrying military equipment hit a mine in the southeastern Turkish province of Diyarbakir, officials said on Friday.

The military said earlier this month that guerrillas of the separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) were stepping up attacks in Turkey after a large number of them were detected smuggling in explosives from north Iraq, where the PKK is based.

More than 30,000 people, mainly Kurds, have been killed since 1984 when the PKK launched its armed campaign for an ethnic homeland in southeastern Turkey.

Fighting has increased since last year, when the rebels called off the unilateral five-year ceasefire they declared after the capture of their leader, Abdullah Ocalan, in 1999.
