ANKARA, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Two Turkish policemen were wounded in an attack staged by members of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) in southeastern Turkey on Monday, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

Four PKK members fired on a police post from a moving vehicle, leaving the two police officers injured in Bismil district of Turkey's southeastern province of Diyarbakir, the report said.

Listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, the PKK took up arms in 1984 to create an ethnic homeland in southeastern Turkey. More than 40,000 people have been killed in conflicts involving the PKK during the past over two decades.
