Rocket fired by Kurdish rebels in Turkey misses target, kills 9-year-old girl

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.

Violence between the PKK and the Turkish security forces reignited this summer, shattering a fragile peace process with the Kurds.
