ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A roadside bomb struck a bus carrying Turkish troops to a navy base in the country's west, killing one and wounding at least 11 others on Thursday, an official said.
The blast occurred near the base on the outskirts of the Aegean resort town of Foca, said Gov. Cahit Kirac of Izmir province.
Earlier, Turkey's state-run TRT television said 30 soldiers were wounded in the attack. The reason for the discrepancy was not clear.
The blast came days after Turkey's interior minister claimed Sunday that Turkish troops have killed as many as 115 suspected Kurdish rebels in a major clash near the southeastern town of Semdinli.
Kurdish rebels are fighting for autonomy in the country's Kurdish-dominated southeast but have also staged attacks elsewhere in the country.
