Turkish soldier killed, two wounded by landmine

A Turkish soldier was killed and two others were wounded when a landmine blew up a military vehicle crossing a bridge in northeastern Turkey, state-run Anatolian news agency said.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the blast which happened near the town of Dereli in Giresun province on the Black Sea.

The smaller, far-left group TKP-TIKKO has historically been active in areas in eastern Turkey, including near the Black Sea, but has not been blamed for any recent violence.

Soldiers were carrying out a large-scale sweep of the area after the attack, Anatolian said.
