Turkish jets hit Kurdish militant camps in Iraq, at least 55 killed: sources
At least 55 militants were killed when Turkish warplanes hit Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) camps in northern Iraq overnight, security sources said on Saturday, as Ankara shows no sign of easing up strikes on insurgents ahead of a Nov. 1 election. The jets took off from a base in Diyarbakir, in Turkey's southeast, and later returned without damage, the sources said. Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast has been hit by almost daily waves of deadly fighting between PKK militants and security forces since the collapse of a ceasefire in July.
