7 Days in Dubai - - TECH TALK -

Turk­ish au­thor­i­ties have is­sued an ar­rest war­rant for the leader of a Syr­ian Kur­dish group. Pros­e­cu­tors in Ankara de­manded the ar­rest of 48 Kur­dish mil­i­tants and lead­ers, in­clud­ing Saleh Mus­lim, who heads the Syr­ian Kur­dish Demo­cratic Union Party, or PYD. The war­rants were is­sued in con­nec­tion to a sui­cide bomb at­tack in Fe­bru­ary in Ankara, which killed 29 peo­ple and was claimed by the out­lawed Kur­dis­tan Work­ers’ Party, or PKK. Tur­key con­sid­ers the PYD as the ex­ten­sion of the PKK in Syria.
