The shootout in Diyarbakir erupted just six days ahead of elections in Turkey, with tensions running high following the country’s worst ever bomb attack and a resurgence of the conflict with Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) rebels. The gun battle is the first with the jihadists on Turkish soil, as security forces hunt down suspects behind the October 10 Ankara suicide bombings that killed 102 people at a pro-Kurdish peace rally.
