A pro-Kurdish demonstration ended in violence on Sunday as people protested against the Turkish government's offensive against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the curfew enforced across parts of south-east Turkey. Police fired tear gas and water cannon at the protesters, who responded by throwing missiles and Molotov cocktails. Waves of clashes have been shaking Turkey since July, following a series of operations and arrests by the Turkish authorities in the wake of the fatal Suruc bombings of July 2015.
