— ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's armed forces denied on Saturday
that they had sent forces into northern Iraq overnight, amid concern
any incursion would raise tension with Iraqi Kurds and Turkey's NATO
Military sources earlier said Turkey sent a vanguard of commandos
into northern Iraq.
"The reports are not true," a Turkish armed forces spokesman said
Kurds in the northern Iraqi enclave also said there had been no
crossing by Turkish forces.
