Turkey : Violent Clashes Between Police And PKK Supporters.

Kurds angry at alleged abuses against jailed rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan clashed with police for a second day running Sunday despite a Turkish government pledge he had not been mistreated.

Arrested in Kenya in February 1999, Ocalan was condemned to death by a Turkish court but the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment in 2002 after Turkey abolished the death penalty.
