At least 10 killed as train derails during testing in eastern France

Turkish jets hit Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK) targets in northern Iraq overnight on Friday, a senior security official said, as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged the international community to prioritize the fight against terrorism in the wake of the Paris attacks.
Eight F-16 jets flying from Diyarbakir air base hit bunkers and weapons stashes in the Kandil region, where the PKK terrorist group has its headquarters.
The attacks came as Turkey prepares to host world leaders for the G20 summit in the Mediterranean city of Antalya on Sunday and Monday.
Violence between the PKK and Turkish security forces has surged since the collapse of a two-year ceasefire in July, with hundreds thought to have died in the bloodshed.
There has been little sign of the tit-for-tat attacks diminishing following a decisive victory for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) founded by Erdogan in snap elections earlier this month, after which he vowed to andquotliquidateandquot the militants.
The PKK is listed as a terror organization in Turkey, Europe and the United States, and Ankara has vowed to crack down on the group as part of a wider campaign against terrorism that has also seen it launch air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in neighboring Syria.
andquotWe have always struggled with terrorism, and we have now reached a point where words end regarding this struggle,andquot Erdogan said in Antalya as he offered his condolences for the attacks in Paris in which gunmen and bombers killed at least 127 on Friday night.
andquotAll terrorism is bad, we must leave aside the feeling that our terrorist is bad and your terrorist is good,andquot Erdogan said in a veiled reference to the PKK.
