DIYARBAKIR - A child and a police officer were killed in two separate attacks in Diyarbakir province in southeast Turkey on Sunday following the breakdown of a ceasefire between the government and Kurdish militants, security sources said.

Fighting between the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the military has taken place almost daily since last month. The PKK has been hitting military and police targets after the government resumed air strikes on PKK camps in northern Iraq.

One child was killed and one other civilian wounded after an explosive device was detonated as soldiers passed by.

In a separate incident, a group of assailants in Diclekent, an upscale neighborhood of Diyarbakir, opened fire on police officers killing one and wounding another, according to security sources. The PKK was responsible, the sources said.
