Turkish military vehicle hit by blast in southeast province, 2 soldiers killed

ISTANBUL - A Turkish military vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device in southeast Sirnak province near the Iraqi border, killing two soldiers, security sources and private Dogan news agency said on Tuesday.
No one claimed responsibility for the blast. But Turkey's southeast has been hit by a surge in violence since a ceasefire with militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) ended last year.
