    A PKK terrorist attack which occured two evenings ago killed 12 people traveling on a minibus near the village of Besagac near Sirnak. Funerals for the 12 took place yesterday first in the city of Beytussebap, where crowds of more than 2,000 gathered and shouted slogans condemning the PKK. The bodies were then laid to rest in the village of Besagac.

    The attack on the minibus took place on Saturday evening, when village residents were returning from working all day digging in water conduits, with the hope that sometime in the near future, Besagac village would have its own running water. When the evening Ramazan meal, iftar, began to approach, the villagers boarded the minibus back to their village. On the road back, the minibus was strafed by bullets from all side, as an estimated 10 PKK terrorists had set up a trap from the woods on both sides of the road.
    Commenting on the attack on his return from the US, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan noted that PKK terrorists had switched their targeting, from security force members to citizens. He also noted that the "determination" of the administration against the terrorists was reflected in what he called the "most recent flailings" of the PKK.
