Kurdish rebels launch missile attack on Turkish police building
font size    

Members of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) attacked a police department building in southeastern Turkey on Friday, causing no casualties, the semi- official Anatolia news agency reported.

The report said that the PKK rebels attacked the police building in Idil town of Diyarbakir province with two missiles around 5.30 p.m. local time (1530 GMT).

One of the missiles hit the wall of the building, while the other hit the kitchen of the police chief's residence where there was nobody in it at that time.

Turkish security forces immediately returned fire and a large- scale operation was underway in the region.

More than 37,000 people have been killed since the rebel group took up arms for self-rule in the mainly Kurdish southeastern Turkey in 1984.
