After three decades of fighting for self-rule, Turkey's Kurdish separatists seem as far away as ever from a final peace deal with Ankara after a fragile truce collapsed this weekend.More than 40,000 people have died since the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) launched its armed struggle for an independent Kurdish state in southeastern Anatolia -- home to most of the country's 13 to 19 million Kurds -- in 1984 .Turkey's latest strikes against PKK bases in northern Iraq marked the fiercest aerial bombardment since August 2011, when PKK targets were pounded in six days of air strikes.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that Ankara could not continue the peace process with the Kurds in the wake of the PKK attacks on security forces and vowed to press ahead with strikes against the militants.Kurdish activists say most of the detainees are Kurds.
