Clashes broke out between police and pro-Kurdish activists in Istanbul on Sunday as they protested the Turkish government's offensive against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the curfew enforced across parts of southeast Turkey. Police unleashed water cannon and tear gas on the protesters, who responded by firing fireworks.
