DIYARBAKIR:– A car bomb attack Saturday blamed on Kurdish militants killed two Turkish soldiers and one civilian in Turkey's troubled southeast, security sources said. At least 10 people were wounded in the attack on a post of the Turkish gendarmerie outside the city of Mardin which was carried out by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), the sources said. The gendarmerie is a branch of the Turkish army which looks after domestic security.–AFP

 The PKK has staged near daily attacks against the Turkish security forces since a two-and-a-half-year truce collapsed last July.
