A roadside bomb killed three Turkish soldiers and wounded six Thursday in one of several temporary security zones that the military had just declared along the Iraq border during its campaign to crush PKK.

Authorities blamed PKK for the blast.

Turkish leaders say PKK cross into Turkey to stage attacks.

The bomb targeted a military vehicle near Siirt, a city 46 miles north of the Iraq border, the governor's office said. It killed three soldiers and wounded six other security personnel, including pro-government village guards, the office said.
