Kurds demonstrators clash with Turkish police

Thousands of Kurds have clashed with police in south-east Turkey, after they were forbidden to hold a demonstration in support of a militant group. The Police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd. Outraged protesters responded by hurling stones at police vehicles and setting off fireworks. The militant group they're supporting is the Kurdistan Workers Party, known as the PKK. The group has been fighting the Turkish state for self-rule since 1984. The protest comes only hours after government officials said the army had killed 16 Kurdish fighters in an offensive targeting militants. More than 40000 people have been killed in the conflict between the PKK and Turkish forces since the insurgency began 28 years ago.
