At least nine fighters killed in separate attacks in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq, government officials say.

Turkish police have detained 23 people, including the Antalya co-chairs of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), in operations against Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants in five provinces, CNN Türk reported on Friday.

In an attack in the eastern province of Tunceli late Friday, a soldier was martyred and two wounded during a counter-terrorism operation, the provincial governor's office said in a statement.
