Report: 19 Kurd rebels killed in attack last week

Turkey's state-run news agency says 19 Kurdish rebels have been killed in last week's airstrike on Kurdish rebel hideouts in northern Iraq.
The Anatolia agency, which cited the military, says four rebels were killed in a separate clash Wednesday in eastern Tunceli province, bringing the overall rebel death toll to 23 since last week's air assault on rebel camps in northern Iraq's Hakurk, Zap and Qandil Mountain regions.
The figures could not be immediately confirmed or independently verified.
The rebels have used northern Iraq to stage hit-and-run attacks on Turkish targets for decades.
Anatolia says one soldier was killed and four others were wounded in another clash Thursday near the Iraqi border.
