Kurdish rebels ambushed a Turkish commando unit overnight, killing four soldiers and wounding one in southeastern Turkey as the rebel command threatened to escalate violence across the country, news reports said Sunday. Later Sunday, police in Istanbul said they had captured seven Kurdish rebels planning bomb attacks in the city, including the commander of a rebel special forces unit, police said. Police said the rebels were collecting intelligence on possible targets but had not yet brought the explosives to Istanbul.
