Turkey's military says 49 Kurdish rebels have been killed in offensives in southeast Turkey. The military said in a statement posted on its website Saturday that the rebels were killed in fighting in Hakkari province over the past two days. Turkey launched anti-rebel offensives involving around 10,000 troops both in southeastern Turkey and across the border in Iraq on Wednesday, after 24 soldiers were killed by the rebels in the deadliest one-day toll against the military since the 1990s. Earlier, the state-run television TRT television reported 32 rebels killed in clashes in a valley in Hakkari province.
