Two Turkish soldiers die after vehicle topples in flooded river

The bodies of two Turkish soldiers who went missing in a flood after heavy rains pummeled the country's southeast were found late Sunday, the military said.

The Turkish army said the soldiers were on guard in southeastern Sanliurfa province on the border with Syria before they were swept away in the flood early Sunday, Star Tribune recalls.

Turkey's Anadolu news agency reported that an armored vehicle carrying four soldiers toppled into an overflowing river. Two of the soldiers escaped, but the other two were missing.

The agency said the fire department, police divers and drones participated in the military's search for the soldiers.
