TEHRAN, July 10 (AFP) - Iranian troops killed two Turkish Kurdish rebels in clashes close to the Iraqi border, Tehran dailies said Saturday, amid reports of a major offensive by Tehran on Ankara's behalf.

The latest fighting took place on Thursday near the town of Baneh, in the far northwest of Kordestan province, some 200 kilometres (125 miles) from the nearest part of Turkey, the papers said.

'These people had illegally crossed the border, ruined border villages and extorted money from residents,' the Hambastegi newspaper quoted an unidentified official as saying."
