DIYARBAKIR, Turkey - Three Turkish soldiers were killed on Sunday in a rocket attack by Kurdish militants during a military operation in the southeastern town of Nusaybin, security sources said.

Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast has been hit by waves of violence in clashes between government security forces and members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) after a ceasefire fell apart last year.
