DIYARBAKIR, Turkey - Six Kurdish militants were killed during clashes in eastern Turkey on Thursday, the local governor's office said, adding to a recent upsurge in conflict between the Turkish armed forces and separatist guerrillas.

Two Turkish soldiers also were reported killed on Wednesday in the fighting between the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and security forces in the Genc district of eastern Bingol province, according to a PKK website.

The Bingol governor's office said in a statement that one militant was captured alive.

Three Turkish soldiers and three PKK militants were killed in clashes on Tuesday. The arrival of milder spring weather typically fuels conflict in the region.
