A five-hour police shootout with a leftist militant in Istanbul left three people dead, including the militant described as a top member of a group tied to the Kurdish separatist PKK, authorities said. A police officer and an onlooker also were killed, and seven police and a television cameraman were wounded, Interior Minister Besir Atalay said.
