A Turkish court Sunday remanded into custody three mayors from the Kurdish-dominated southeast on charges of seeking to destroy national unity by allegedly supporting calls for regional self-rule, reports said.The investigation comes as Turkey carries out its biggest operation in years against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants who have responded by tearing up a 2013 cease-fire and staging daily attacks against the security forces.According to figures published Saturday by the state-run Anatolia news agency, 812 PKK militants have been killed in the campaign while 56 members of the Turkish security forces have lost their lives.
