At least eight people were killed in clashes between the Turkish military and Kurdish rebels on the country's Syrian border, the army said Tuesday, apparently the most serious outbreak of violence since the militants declared a cease-fire last year.A local official earlier pointed the finger at smugglers, after an armed group crossing the border from Syria into Turkey ignored calls to stop and opened fire on an army outpost. Three border guards were wounded, two of whom later died, after they came under attack from around 15 people trying to cross into Turkey, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement.
