ANKARA - Two Turkish soldiers were killed and another three wounded on Tuesday evening in two attacks by Kurdish militants in southeast Turkey's Diyarbakir province, the military said.

Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters launched one attack in the Lice district of Diyarbakir, wounding four soldiers, one of whom later died in hospital, an armed forces statement said on Wednesday.

It said another soldier was shot dead by PKK militants in Diyarbakir's Bismil district after he got out of a vehicle in front of his house.

More than 40,000 people have been killed in the conflict since the PKK, designated a terrorist group by Turkey and its Western allies, began its insurgency in 1984. Violence has surged since the collapse of a ceasefire last July.
