Turkey slaps curfew on two more towns in Kurdish southeast

A protester during clashes between Turkish forces and Kurdish people in the centre of Diyarbakir, at a rally against a curfew in the Sur district of the southeastern Turkish city on March 2, 2016Turkey on Sunday slapped a curfew on two border towns in the Kurdish-dominated southeast ahead of a looming military “clean-up” operation as it eased a lockdown in Diyarbakir. Turkish troops have been waging a major — and controversial — offensive against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) since December, imposing strict 24-hour curfews in a number of towns and cities in the southeast. Ankara has repeatedly imposed curfews for military operations in southeastern urban centres, and on Sunday said restrictions would be slapped on two more towns — Yuksekova, near the Iranian border, and Nusaybin, on the frontier with Syria.
