Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Tuesday he was dispatching a "high-level" political and security team to Turkey to try to defuse tensions on the Iraqi-Turkish border. Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh, meanwhile, said authorities intend to expel guerrillas of the separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party from Iraqi territory, but that their numbers and their whereabouts were not known to the government. He did not elaborate.
