A 12-year-old girl became the ninth victim Tuesday of a bomb blast in Turkey's southeast, which has highlighted fears that Kurdish rebels seeking self-rule are becoming emboldened by moves toward autonomy by the Kurdish minority in war-torn Syria.
President Obama's administration is inclined to sell armed drones to Turkey but has to convince Congress first, Turkey's president told reporters after a meeting with the U.S. leader.
On the night of Oct. 19, militants from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) staged a terrorist attack against the Turkish armed forces, killing 24 and wounding 18 servicemen. The four-hour assault took place in eight remote locations in the Yuksekova and Cukurca districts of the Hakkari province of Turkey, near its border with Iraq.
The Supreme Court on Monday upheld one of the government's most frequently used tools in the battle against terrorism.
