Kurdish Protester Killed in Clashes With Turkey Police

An 18-year-old Kurdish protester was killed Saturday in unclear circumstances during clashes with police in the majority Kurd region of southeast Turkey.
The victim was killed by a bullet while anti-riot police responded to stone-throwing protesters at the rally in the city of Yuksekova, the AFP reported.
Local authorities said that the young protester was “implicated in the violence against police forces”.
The protest had been called to commemorate the death of three demonstrators in the same city in a confrontation with police a year ago.
The protesters were demonstrating against Ankara’s refusal to intervene militarily to help the Kurds defend the Syrian border city of Kobane which has been under siege by IS militants.
