By Ece Toksabay ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's outlawed Kurdish PKK militant group attacked a convoy carrying the main opposition party leader, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, in the northeast of the country on Thursday but he escaped unharmed, the interior minister said. Interior Minister Efkan Ala told Turkey's NTV news channel that three soldiers were injured in the exchange of fire with what he said were Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) attackers. President Tayyip Erdogan has said he will root out and destroy the PKK, which seeks autonomy or independence.
