ISTANBUL: Turkey's state news agency says seven soldiers have been wounded by a roadside bomb planted by Kurdish rebels in the southeast.

The explosive device went off as a military vehicle went by in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bomb.

The outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, however, stages frequent attacks against Turkish policemen and troops. A truce between the state and the insurgent movement, which has fought in southeast Turkey for decades, collapsed last July.

Since then, Turkey has witnessed a resurgence of violence, including large-scale military campaigns to flush out Kurdish rebels from urban areas.
