PKK kills five people in Turkey

PKK militants attacked a police college in southeastern Turkey on Tuesday, killing four people in a passing vehicle, broadcaster CNN Turk reported on its website on Tuesday.

It said one PKK militant was killed in a subsequent clash near the college in the province of Siirt. Two other people were wounded in the attack.

The militants attacked with rocket launchers and the four victims, two of them women, were killed when a missile struck the car in which they were travelling to a wedding, the report said.

Security sources were not immediately available to confirm the attack.

More than 40,000 people have been killed in the conflict between the state and PKK, which took up arms in 1984.
