    Two village guards have been killed by Kurdish militants in the southeast of Turkey close to the Iraqi border, officials said on Monday. The village guard came under attack on the main road linking the towns of Sirnak and Hakkari late on Sunday night, read a statement by the local governor's office. "The terrorists escaped after the attack using the cover of darkness," the statement said, "security forces have launched a large search operation for the culprits."

    The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) announced only last week that the one-month ceasefire that was called for in August has now been extended until October 3. However, the Turkish military continue to step up operations in the southeast.

    Turkey claims that over 30,000 people have died since the PKK launched its campaign for independence in the southeast of Turkey in 1984.
