Kurdish guerrillas killed four Turkish soldiers in the country's southeast, Turkey's state owned news agency said Friday. The guerrillas killed the soldiers in a clash near the town of Guclukonak in Sirnak province, the Anatolia news agency quoted Education Minister Huseyin Celik as saying Friday during a visit in the region. "We came here to open a school but we got this news. We're very sorry," Anatolia quoted Celik as saying in the town of Idil. Education Ministry officials could not immediately confirm the report. Kurdish guerillas have been fighting for autonomy in the southeast since 1984. The clashes claimed the lives of 37,000 people so far.
