Eight Turkish Police Officers Killed

A roadside explosive killed eight Turkish police officers and wounded nine more when it went off in southern Turkey, officials in the country said Sunday. It is believed that the mine, which detonated as a bus carrying the police officers passed, was set by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, according to officials. One hundred twenty-three Kurdish militants have been killed in a little more than a week as the Turkish military has engaged with the PKK, which is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the European Union. Seven hundred people have been killed in related violence since June.
