Twenty-One Dead In Clashes With Kurdish Rebels

Five more suspected Kurdish rebels have been reported killed in clashes with Turkish forces in southeast Turkey.

Turkish security officials say rebels with the Kurdistan Workers Party attacked a police station and government offices in Semdinli district in the mountainous province of Hakkari, which borders Iraq and Iran.

Earlier on August 23, PKK rebels targeted two military posts in Semdinli.  

The attacks came only hours after government officials said Turkish troops had killed 16 PKK fighters in an offensive targeting militants who killed five soldiers and wounded seven on August 22 in a bomb attack on their convoy in Semdinli.
