Abducted four Turkish soldiers were released in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir on Monday.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the event was aimed at sabotaging the "solution process," current talks between the government and the PKK to end thirty years of terrorism that killed over 40,000 people.

"At any rate, we will continue the process and not fall for these games," Erdogan told journalists.

The kidnapped soldiers - two sergeants and two non-commissioned officers - were on their way back to neighboring Bingol when their vehicles were halted by an unknown group of men who checked the soldiers' identities.

The attackers burnt down the vehicles and carried the soldiers off.
