ARBIL, Iraq - Seven Iraqi civilians were killed in an air strike by a Turkish warplane in Iraq's semi-autonomous northern Kurdish region on Sunday, a local mayor and an eyewitness said.

The strike hit a car in which the civilians were traveling, Hassan Abdulla, mayor of the town of Qalat Dizah, located northeast of the city of Sulaimaniya, told Reuters.

Turkish warplanes have been targeting Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebels from Wednesday night following increased attacks by the guerrilla forces in southeastern Turkey.
