Turkey's state-run television says a roadside bomb struck a bus carrying Turkish troops to a navy base in the country's west, killing one and wounding 30 others.

TRT television says the blast occurred near the base on the outskirts of the Aegean resort town of Foca on Thursday.

The attack came days after Turkey's interior minister claimed Sunday that Turkish troops have killed as many as 115 Kurdish rebels in a major clash near the southeastern town of Semdinli.

Kurdish rebels are fighting for autonomy in the country's Kurdish-dominated southeast but have also staged attacks elsewhere in the country.
