Turkish dailies, on Friday, covered a new regulation announced by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a clash between security teams and terrorists in southeastern Turkey killing two soldiers and raise in natural gas and electricity prices as of October. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Almost all newspapers wrote about statements by Prime Minister Erdogan who appeared on private channels NTV and Star TV. The dailies quoted Erdogan as saying that they were working on a new regulation whereby inmates would be able to spend 24 hours with their spouses in special locations out of prisons. Erdogan said that he would give details about the new regulation at his party Justice and Development (AK) Party's convention that would be held on Sunday.
The premier also announced results of public surveys conducted by five separate companies that 52.1 percent of participants supported AK Party and 24.2 percent supported the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP).
Another topic in newspapers is a clash between security forces and PKK terrorists in Cukurca town of southeastern province of Hakkari, killing two soldiers and wounding three others. 13 PKK terrorists were killed in the clash, dailies said.

Daily VATAN said that economy administration proposed a 15 percent increase in natural gas prices and a 9 percent raise in electricity prices, but Premier Erdogan said raise in prices should be lower.
