DIYARBAKIR - Kurdish guerrillas fired on a military convoy in eastern Turkey on Monday, killing three soldiers and wounding three others, security sources said.

They said the convoy was passing through Baskale in Van province when the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants opened fire.

There were unconfirmed media reports that a district official and his bodyguard were wounded in the attack, which occurred near Turkey's mountainous border with Iran.

The PKK ended a six-month old ceasefire in February and moved to what it calls an "active defense" stance, whereby its fighters defend themselves if threatened.
