Official: Turkish airstrike kills two Iraqi civilians

BAGHDAD - Two Iraqi civilians were killed and three more wounded in a Turkish airstrike on northern Iraqi Kurdistan targeting Kurdish separatists, a Kurdistan official said on Wednesday.
The strike on Tuesday hit a village near Rania, close to the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan where rebels from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) have been sheltering in their 28-year-old guerrilla war against Turkish forces.
"Two civilians were killed and three more wounded in a village in Rania by a Turkish air strike," said Jabbar Yawar, secretary general for Kurdistan's Peshmerga military forces.
