ISTANBUL – Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency says a vehicle laden with explosives has hit an army outpost in the southeastern province of Mardin, causing multiple injuries. Other Turkish media reported at least one dead soldier and up to 14 people wounded.
The private Dogan news agency says one soldier has been killed and five wounded in the attack Saturday at the Mardin outpost. According to the private broadcaster NTV, a soldier and a civilian were killed and 14 people were injured by the blast.
Turkey has been fighting Kurdish militants in its southeastern provinces after a cease-fire with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, collapsed last July. The renewed conflict has claimed the lives of nearly 600 security personnel and more than 5,000 Kurdish militants, according to Anadolu. An unknown number of civilians have also been killed.
