A Turkish soldier was killed in a clash with 10 outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) militants in southeastern Turkey on Thursday, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

Another soldier was wounded when the Turkish troops clashed with the group of PKK militants in the rural area of Dicle town of the southeastern province of Diyarbakir, according to the report.

The wounded soldier was taken under treatment in a military hospital in Diyarbakir, said the report, adding that security operations are under way in the region.

The PKK took up arms in 1984 to create an ethnic homeland in southeastern Turkey. Some 40,000 people have been killed in the over-two-decade conflict.

Turkish warplanes has been striking PKK targets in northern Iraq in the past few months.

The Turkish forces take tougher actions against the PKK after the country's legislature extended the government's mandate to launch cross-border operations against the rebels in northern Iraq.
