Turkish authorities often use the term "neutralized" in statements to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

However many Iraqi experts have pointed to the probability that the PKK, which Ankara considers a terrorist group, was behind the attack.

But Ankara insists the separatist group, which has fought a decadeslong insurgency against Turkey demanding Kurdish autonomy in the south of the country, was behind the shooting.

At least one Turkish diplomat was shot dead in a restaurant in northern Iraq.

The attackers fled the scene, according to sources.

"India has always opposed and rejected terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and has urged concerted action by the global community against terrorism, including cross-border terrorism", he said.

China takes 'compulsory measures' against Australian writer: ministry
Confirmation was being sought from Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Chinese embassy in Canberra. The allegation is more sweeping, Mo said, than a specific charge such as espionage.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, called the incident and "atrocious attack against our consulate employees in Erbil". The group, which has waged a revolt against Turkey since 1984, operates bases in Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region.

Earlier this month, the PKK announced that one of those raids killed senior PKK leader Diyar Gharib Mohammed, along with two other fighters.

No immediate claim of responsibility was made for the shooting.

The prime minister has said he is looking at strengthening the Kurdish regional government's relationship with Turkey.

The US embassy also slammed the attack as "heinous" and offered its condolences to the Turkish mission, calling for "the defence and safety of foreign diplomats and diplomatic missions in Iraq".
