Kurdish guerrillas on Wednesday staged a bomb attack against a military vehicle, killing two soldiers and wounding six others near the Iraqi border, the state-run Anatolia news agency said. The attack occurred close to the Iraqi border, near the town of Cukurca in Hakkari province, Anatolia said. Military helicopters flew the injured to hospitals as military units in the region launched an operation to hunt down the attackers, it said. The rebels belong to the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which has escalated attacks on Turkish targets from bases in northern Iraq. Turkey has been considering a military incursion into northern Iraq to try to eradicate rebel bases there and has asked the United States and Iraq to crack down on the rebels.
