Kurdish Protests Roil Turkey as Jihadists Fight in Kobani

Updated on

Armored vehicles took to the streets of towns in southeast Turkey, as the government enforced a curfew to end deadly clashes with Kurds angry at the country’s response to Islamic State’s militants in neighboring Syria.

Violence erupted late yesterday as Turkish Kurds protested against what they say is Turkey’s failure to stop an Islamic State advance on the mainly Kurdish town of Kobani just across the Syrian border.
