DIYARBAKIR, Turkey - A 9-year-old girl was killed and five people were wounded when a rocket fired by Kurdish militants hit a house in Diyarbakir province in southeastern Turkey on Sunday, the local governor's office said.

The Kurdish insurgents had targeted an armored police vehicle but instead struck a three-story house in the mainly Kurdish town of Bismil, it said.

The governor's office also said two Kurdish militants were killed in the city of Diyarbakir in what appeared to be a separate incident.

Southeast Turkey has been scorched by deadly fighting between security forces and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) since the end of a two-year-long ceasefire in July.
