ANKARA (AFP) – Turkish warplanes early Thursday bombed “a large group” of Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq after six soldiers were killed in a blast blamed on the militants, the Turkish army said.

The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) group, spotted in the Avashin-Basyan region along the Turkish border, “was fired on intensively and successfully hit,” the statement, posted on the army’s website, said.

It made no mention of casualties.
