Kurdish rebels on Sunday released eight Turkish soldiers in northern Iraq two weeks after capturing them in an ambush inside Turkey, a PKK spokesman said. The release came before Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan meets US President George W. Bush on Monday in Washington to discuss a possible cross-border offensive against the Kurdish rebel group.
