PKK claims to have killed 15 Turkish soldiers in ambush

ANKARA – The Kurdish militant group PKK said on Sunday it had killed 15 Turkish soldiers in an attack on a convoy of armoured vehicles in southeast Turkey, in what could be the bloodiest assault since the collapse of a ceasefire in July.

The number of casualties could not be independently verified but in a televised statement President Tayyip Erdogan confirmed an attack had taken place in Hakkari province, close to Turkey’s borders with Iran and Iraq.
