Three people died on Sunday when a landmine, planted by the outlawed PKK, exploded when the truck they were traveling in passed by it in Semdinli town in the southeastern province of Hakkari, the Anatolian Agency reported.

The three killed were reported to be from the same family.

The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the most of the international community, including the EU and the U.S., frequently uses remote-control landmines to target Turkey's security forces.
