Four soldiers killed in blast in eastern Turkey

Four Turkish soldiers were killed on Sunday in the eastern province of Hakkari after a device planted in a military operating area exploded, security sources said.

An officer was among the dead and searches were underway for further devices, they added.

Turkey's government is currently working on a "Kurdish initiative" to widen democratic rights and freedoms, which it hopes will erode support for the PKK.
