DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Thirteen Turkish soldiers were wounded when their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb explosion in the largely Kurdish eastern province of Mus, security sources said on Tuesday.

Turkey has been hit by waves of daily violence between Kurdish militants and security forces, with much of it centered in the largely Kurdish southeast, since a ceasefire with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) broke down in July.
