DIYARBAKIR - Kurdish militants killed three people in an attack on an oil field in southeast Turkey overnight, security officials said on Thursday.

The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas shot dead two security personnel and an electrician as they got out of their vehicle at the Selmo oil field at Kozluk in Batman province on Wednesday night, the officials said.

An air-backed operation was launched at dawn in pursuit of the PKK fighters, security officials said.

More than 40,000 people have been killed in the PKK's separatist insurgency since it took up arms against the state in 1984. The PKK is designated a terrorist group by the United States, European Union and Turkey.
