IDIL, Sept 10 : Pro-Kurdish politicians, including cabinet ministers, attempted to march to a town in southeast Turkey on Thursday to protest a week-old curfew there, as their party came under fire from President Tayyip Erdogan and from a court investigation of their leader.
Conflict between militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and Turkish security forces has surged since
a ceasefire collapsed in July, shattering
a peace process launched in 2012 and leaving hundreds dead.
The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) and its leader, Selhattin Demirtas, have accused Erdogan and the ruling AK Party of whipping up nationalist sentiment ahead of a Nov.1 election while enforcing a security crackdown in the mainly Kurdish southeast.
HDP offices have been targeted, and some set ablaze, in a series of attacks across the country by nationalist crowds this week.     ?REUTERS
