Thousands of Kurdish protesters took to the streets in Turkey, on Sunday.
They were protesting against the Turkish army's military operations against the Kurdistan Workers' Party, and the killing of Kurdish rebels.
Clashes between protestors and police erupted in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast. Angry demonstrators hurled stones and firecrackers, ignoring orders to disperse.
As protesters blocked streets with barricades and burning tires, police used water cannons and smoke grenades to break up the crowds.
The PKK took up arms against Turkey in 1984, in a bid to gain an independent Kurdish homeland. They have also demanded political and cultural rights for Kurds.
