    A bombing in eastern Turkey killed at least seven soldiers on Tuesday in what is suspected to be a carried out by the Kurdistan Workers Pary. The soldiers were driving through the city of Tunceli when a vehicle filled with explosives detonated near their armored truck. The terrorist group was founded in 1984 with the goal of creating a Kurdish state, and it has been responsible for several attacks on military targets in recent months. A week ago, PPK fighters killed 10 soldiers and injured at least 60 others when they attacked a military convoy in eastern Turkey.
