DIYARBAKIR - Ten Turkish soldiers were killed and 70 wounded in a rocket assault by Kurdish rebels on their military convoy, said local security sources. The convoy was hit by rebel rockets on a highway in southeastern Bingol province, sparking a fire that wounded dozens of soldiers in an army bus. The number of dead was initially given as four, with 48 wounded, by the local governor later said the casualty toll had risen. Dozens of wounded soldiers were being treated at nearby hospitals. The Turkish army retaliated with an immediate operation backed by air power in the Bingol area to capture the members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
