Turkish security forces have killed one person and wounded nine others after opening fire on a group of protesters in the Kurdish-dominated province of Diyarbakir.

The demonstrators are opposed to the construction of a new police facility in the area.

The violence is the worst since the PKK called a ceasefire in its conflict with the Turkish state in March.
