From Times Wire Reports

Kurdish guerrillas attacked government troops in Turkey’s southeast, a day after the rebels announced an end to a five-year unilateral truce, the Anatolian news agency reported.

The rebels wounded a noncommissioned officer near the town of Ovacik, Anatolian said.

Hundreds of Turkish commandos reinforced the troops from the air with attack helicopters and launched an operation to hunt down an estimated 150 Kurdish rebels in the area, a local military official said.
