Kurdish unrest in southeastern Turkey

Several thousand Kurds are in the third day of their mass-scale unrest in southeastern Turkey.

They first clashed with police after the authorities banned a rally in support of the Kurdistan Workers Party, which is officially seen as a terrorist organization in Turkey.

Police officers first urged the protesters to leave for their homes, but Kurds responded with hurling rocks and bottles at them.

Police then used tear grenades and water cannons. Dozens of protesters have been arrested.
