ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) – A private news agency says two Turkish soldiers were killed in a clash with Kurdish rebels in Turkey’s southeast.

Dogan news agency says another soldier was injured in the clash in Bingol province early Sunday.

The report does not say how badly injured the soldier is. Two other Turkish security personnel were killed on Saturday in a clash in Sirnak province, some 350 kilometers (220 miles) away from Sunday’s fighting.

Kurdish rebels have been fighting for self-rule in Turkey’s southeast since 1984. Tens of thousands have been killed in the fighting since then.
