Tur­key jails five may­ors in Kur­dish south­east

The China Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

Turk­ish courts on Sun­day re­manded in cus­tody five may­ors from the Kur­dish- dom­i­nated south­east on charges of seek­ing to de­stroy na­tional unity by al­legedly sup­port­ing calls for re­gional sel­f­rule, re­ports said.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion comes as Tur­key car­ries out its big­gest op- er­a­tion in years against Kur­dis­tan Work­ers Party ( PKK) mil­i­tants who have re­sponded by tear­ing up a 2013 cease-fire and stag­ing daily at­tacks against the se­cu­rity forces.
