ISTANBUL - Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants ended an unilateral ceasefire in Turkey which they declared last month, a news agency close to them cited the PKK umbrella group as saying on Thursday.

"The unilateral halt to hostilities has come to an end with the (Turkish ruling) AKP's war policy and the latest attacks," the Firat news agency quoted the statement as saying.

The group had declared the ceasefire on Oct. 10 ahead of a Nov. 1 parliamentary election.
