Turkey calls for US action on Kurdish guerrillas

LONDON, July 28 (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan warned on Thursday he could take action against Kurdish guerrillas in Iraq if U.S. forces did not stop the rebels infiltrating across the border into Turkey.

"At the moment, frankly speaking, we do not see the efforts by the U.S. that we expect to see. We have expressed our views to that effect to the Americans," Erdogan said in an interview with Britain's Times newspaper.

"There is a time limit. There is a limit to our tolerance," said Erdogan.
