Pro­test­ers storm Turk­ish base in Iraq; teen killed

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - News -

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.
