Tens of thousands of Turks are gathering across Turkey for the funerals of 15 soldiers slain in a Kurdish rebel attack. The mourners are gathering in several cities across the nation Sunday. At least one soldier has already been buried near the southeastern city of Diyarbakir. His flag-draped coffin was carried on the shoulders of fellow soldiers and family members amid calls for tougher action against the rebels, who have been fighting for autonomy in Turkey's southeast since 1984. Turkey has vowed to wage an all-out fight against the rebels since they killed the 15 soldiers in a raid on a military unit near the Iraqi border Friday. The military plans a news conference Sunday about the attack and military countermeasures undertaken since then.
