A three-month-old baby and her grandfather have been killed when they became caught in the crossfire between Turkish security forces and Kurdish rebels.

The baby, named Miray, was hit in the head when the family's house in Cizre was shelled on Friday night during street battles between Turkish forces and PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) rebels.

Her 73-year-old grandfather Ramazan Ince was then shot while he was carrying her to a nearby ambulance.

Three soldiers were also killed today in a roadside bombing by the outlawed PKK.
