Suspected Kurdish guerrillas derailed Friday seven cars of a freight train in the latest attack in southeastern Turkey, Turkish media reported.

The guerrillas set off a remote controlled bomb on Friday, derailing seven cars of a freight train in the latest attack in the country's southeast, authorities said. No immediate casualties were reported.

The attack occurred near the town Genc in southeastern Bingol province, the governor's office said.

On Thursday, the rebels killed six Turkish soldiers in a roadside bomb attack. A deadly suicide bombing occurred two days earlier that intensified debate in Turkey about whether to attack Kurdish rebels operating across the border in northern Iraq.
