Protesters storm Turkish base in Iraq; teen killed
Angry protesters stormed a Turkish military base in Shaladze in northern Iraq on Saturday, burning Turkish military vehicles and leading to a confrontation that left one teenager killed and 10 injured, said officials in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region.
The protesters were demonstrating against a recent Turkish air raid that killed six civilians, the officials said.
A video obtained by The Associated Press showed a crowd of protesters trying to smash the door of what appeared to be a warehouse. Fire and smoke could be seen rising from military vehicles.
