Scores killed as Turkey steps up Iraqi bombing campaign

Kurdish rebels deny major losses

by

Turkish officials claim to have killed nearly 100 Kurdish rebels in a six-day bombing campaign in Northern Iraq. Guerillas from the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) have been using the mountainous district to launch attacks into Turkey, part of an ongoing, 27-year-old conflict. The PKK disputes the Turkish toll, while Iraqi officials claim at least seven civilians were killed during the bombings.
