ANKARA: Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described the gunning down of three members of the security forces in the southern province of Nigde on Thursday as a "nefarious terrorist attack", but did not say who was responsible.

"Two soldiers and one police (officer) have been martyred. Two of the assailants were captured alive and our security forces are conducting a search for the third," Erdogan said.
