Turk troops escape PKK suicide attack

Turkish paramilitary police escaped unscathed from a suicide attack by PKK late on Saturday, the provincial governor said on Sunday.

PKK militants attacked a paramilitary police station in the eastern Turkish province of Tunceli using a truck filled with oil, and clashes had followed on Saturday night, army sources said.

But on Sunday Tunceli Governor Mustafa Yaman said the gendarme police, who work alongside the army and are responsible for security in rural areas, had anticipated the attack and fled to avoid being hurt, and no one was killed.

Two militants had stolen a truck carrying oil and killed themselves when they blew it up, the governor said.
