Two Turkish soldiers, PKK rebels killed in clashes

ISTANBUL, May 30 (KUNA) -- Two Turkish soldiers were killed during a clash with Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) members in the Southeast province of Cirnak, Turkish military official said on Tuesday.

Members of the banned Party engaged in a shoot out with security forces that resulted in killing of two of PKK members, Turkish news agency (IHLAS) said.

Violent clashes between the PKK and security forces have increased, especially during this month, since the jailed party leader Abdullah Ojalan, in Emirili Island, called off a unilateral cease-fire in 2004.

The PKK or groups linked to it have also carried out attacks on civilian targets all over Turkey. (end)
