Girl killed by rocket fired by Kurdish rebels in Turkey

Turkish police say a rocket fired by Kurdish rebels missed its target and hit a home in a town in southeast Turkey, killing a 9-year-old girl. Five other people were injured in the incident. A police statement said rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, aimed their attack late Friday at a police vehicle in the town of Bismil but hit the house instead. On Monday, suspected PKK rebels detonated a bomb on a road in the mainly Kurdish Bitlis province, injuring some 20 soldiers riding in a military vehicle, the private Dogan news agency reported. None of them was in serious condition.
