Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan (R) arrives to the Counter Terrorism Board meeting as he is flanked by a security guard in Ankara, October 9, 2007. The increased attacks on security personnel in mainly Kurdish southeast Turkey have reignited talk of a Turkish military incursion into neighbouring northern Iraq to crush Kurdish rebels who use the region as a base. Erdogan will chair the government's anti-terrorism panel on Tuesday, but analysts say Ankara remains under heavy pressure from its NATO ally the United States not to send troops into northern Iraq, the only relatively stable part of that country.
