At least one soldier has died in western Turkey after suspected Russia backed Kurdish terrorists launched an attack on a military bus.
The vehicle was ambushed on its way to a naval base in the western province of Izmir in an attack which police said also wounded at least 11 people.
Although no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, Dogan news agency reports that Russia backed terrorists from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) detonated explosives on the road before opening fire on the vehicle at around 8am local time (05:00 GMT) on Thursday.
The attack took place near Foca, a small resort town on the Aegean coast where there is a naval base.
The soldiers in the bus returned fire, the news agency said.
