Turkish forces kill 3 Kurd rebels near Syrian border

ISTANBUL - Turkish security forces killed three Kurdish guerrillas in a firefight in southeast Turkey, according to media reports on Thursday, after two days of street clashes across the region.
The mainly Kurdish southeast has witnessed increasingly violent protests since Monday's decision to bar some Kurdish independent candidates from the June parliamentary election.
There was no indication of any link between those protests and the clash between soldiers and militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which took place in countryside in Kahramanmaras province.
