Turkey Snubs Possible PKK Ceasefire    10/09 06:33

   ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- A senior Turkish official has renewed a call on 
Kurdish rebels to lay down their arms and leave the Turkish territory.

   Deputy Prime Minister Yalcin Akdogan's comments Friday came amid reports 
that the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, was preparing to announce a 
unilateral cease-fire that would last until Turkey's Nov. 1 elections.

   Yalcin dismissed the possible announcement as a tactical maneuver and said 
Turkey would maintain its battle against the PKK until it gets "results."

   Violence between the PKK and the Turkish security forces reignited this 
summer, shattering a fragile peace process. Close to 150 police and soldiers 
and hundreds of PKK rebels have been killed in the fighting since July.

   The PKK has been fighting for autonomy in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast 
since 1984.
