Roadside bomb kills 2 police in eastern Turkey

ISTANBUL - A remote controlled roadside bomb killed two Turkish police officers in the eastern province of Tunceli on Wednesday, news channels reported.

Police and military helicopters, backed by ground troops, were searching the area after the blast which drew no immediate claim of responsibility.

The outlawed militant group PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party) has declared what it calls an "active defense" stance after ending a 6-month ceasefire in February. The PKK launched an insurgency in 1984 to carve an independent Kurdish area in the southeast.

More than 40,000 people have been killed in the conflict, the majority of them Kurds.
