Turkey Hit by Third Bomb

A FREIGHT train derailed in eastern Turkey after suspected Kurdish rebels detonated a remote-controlled bomb on the tracks.

There were no casualties in yesterday's train blast, the third in less than a week.

The attack occurred just six days after two similar remote-control attacks derailed two trains in south-east Turkey, killing six security guards.

Turkey's Kurdish rebels strain regional politics

Turkey's Kurds admire the self-rule their Iraqi cousins enjoy, but the safe haven accorded to Turkish Kurd rebels in northern  Iraq fuels Ankara's fears of Kurdish separatism and keeps the region under strain.

With the resurgence of violence in Turkey's southeast by the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), based in neighboring Kurdish-held northern Iraq since 1999, Ankara believes the Iraqi Kurds are also accountable.

US reluctance to clamp down on PKK camps in the Qandil mountains along the Iranian border has already frustrated Ankara and burdened ties between the two  NATO allies.

The Turkish army, which lost at least 32 men since clashes intensified in April, says the PKK -- blacklisted as a terror group by the United States and the  European Union -- enjoys "ideal conditions" in the region thanks to foreign support.
