Soldiers Killed in Turkey

Fifteen soldiers were killed in an overnight clash with Kurdish rebels in southeastern Turkey, according to CNN.
Turkey has been pressing Iraq and the United States to hit bases of the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, in northern Iraq, and has considered a military operation across the border to root out the insurgents, according to The Herald Tribune.
"Our government is determined to take every measure possible if it will be useful to stamp out terrorism," State Minister Cemil Cicek, the government spokesman, said at the end of a Cabinet meeting.
