Kurdish militants have attacked a police station in southeast Turkey with a truck bomb, killing six people including a baby and two toddlers, in one of the biggest strikes since the conflict reignited in July, security officials said Thursday.The mainly Kurdish region has suffered a surge in violence since a two-year ceasefire between the state and Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels collapsed, reviving an insurgency that has killed 40,000 people over three decades.The conflict is a challenge to Turkey's security forces, which are fighting on two fronts. A security source said 1.5 tonnes of explosives were used in the blast.Coinciding with the bomb attack, PKK fighters opened fire on a nearby security complex, triggering a firefight, but no casualties were reported, the statement said.
