Pro-Kurdish protestors attack voting booth


Voters in Turkey’s Mersin province had to be protected when a school used as a polling station was attacked by pro-Kurdish protestors.

The demonstrators allegedly tried to prevent people from taking part by throwing stones and molotov cocktails at passing cars.

They also chanted slogans of support for the outlawed PKK or Kurdistan Workers Party, according to Turkish news agencies.

Riot police were dispatched to the area, which has a high percentage of Kurdish residents.
