The sanctions, from a U.S. drug trafficking law, also block any transactions and trade involving American companies and individuals, according to the White House. Bush designated four foreign individuals and two other foreign entities subject to the sanctions.

The PKK has used a remote part of Iraq's largely autonomous region of Kurdistan as a base to stage attacks inside Turkey.
