Kurds Ambush Bus in Turkey Killing 12

Twelve people were killed when Kurdish gunmen attacked a minibus in southeast Turkey on Saturday. Turkish military officials placed the blame on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). They said the bus’ passengers were ordered to get out of the bus and were then gunned down execution-style along the side of the road. The attack occurred one day after Turkey signed an agreement with Iraq aimed at ending Kurdish attacks on Turkey from Iraq. The Turks claim 20 PKK members were killed during a two-week offensive that ended on Friday.
