PKK roadside bomb kills man SE Turkey - Gov.

ANKARA, Aug 18 (KUNA) -- A roadside bomb allegedly planted by the Kurdistan People's Party militants killed a Turkish man in the southeastern Turkish province of Hakkari on Sunday.
The victim, a driver, was killed on spot when the suspected PKK bomb blew his vehicle up in Semdinli district, the province's governor said in a press statement.
The Turkish security and military agencies have been conducting a broad crackdown campaign against the party, listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the US and EU, in Turkey and inside two neighboring countries: Iraq and Syria since the resumption of the decades-long Turkish-PKK conflict on 24 July, 2015.
Since then, over 4,550 people were killed and thousands others injured in clashes or terror attacks, according to the International Crisis Group (ICG). (end) rs.ibi
