A Turkish soldier was killed in a bomb attack in Turkey.
The soldier was severely injured when explosives believed to have been planted by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants detonated as a military vehicle passed in Uludere, a district lying on the Iraq border.
He later died of his wounds in hospital, the official said.
The attack came one day after the Governor’s Office in Şırnak announced that 10 PKKmilitants were “neutralized” in an ongoing anti-terror operation in the province.
“Neutralized” is a term used by the military and state officials to describe militants both killed and captured.
“14 terrorists were neutralized for the past week in Cudi Mountain area,” added a written statement.
