UPDATE 1-Turkish armoury explosion kills seven soldiers in southeast - Erdogan
(Updates number of dead and wounded, adds quotes)
"We have seven martyrs and 25 wounded soldiers due to the explosion," Erdogan said ahead of his departure to France for commemorative events on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. Officials are inspecting the site, he said.
Turkey has in recent months carried out air strikes on bases of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, especially its stronghold in the Qandil mountains, where Ankara has also threatened to carry out a ground offensive. (Writing by Ezgi Erkoyun; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
