PKK sympathizers clash with police in southeastern Turkey

A group of sympathizers of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) clashed with police on Saturday night in the Silopi district of the southeastern Turkish province of Şırnak. The group first blocked the İpek Yolu Highway connecting Silopi to Habur, building barricades out of stones and barrels and conducting identity checks. When police attempted to disperse the crowd and re-open the road to traffic, the protesters proceeded to İstiklal Avenue and continued their demonstration there. The protest turned violent after demonstrators hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at the riot police and police vehicles.
