font size    

One Turkish soldier was killed and two others injured on Thursday when a landmine planted by Kurdish rebels exploded in the southeastern province of Bingol.

The explosion occurred during an operation of Turkish security forces in the mountainous area of Genc town in Bingol, the governor's office said in a statement.

The injured were immediately taken to a nearby hospital and they were in stable condition, the statement added.

The outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) has launched an armed campaign for an ethnic homeland in the mainly Kurdish southeastern Turkey since 1984, which has claimed more than 30,000 lives.
