Turkey demo turns violent

Local people help clear up in the aftermath of a protest in south-eastern Turkey in which at least one person was killed. Turkish security forces shot dead an 18-year-old man and wounded ten others when they opened fire on the demonstrators, according to a lawmaker in the Kurdish-dominated region. The protest in a village in Diyarbakir province was over the construction of a replacement police outpost. Some of the protesters hurled petrol bombs. The tents of workers employed on the construction site were set on fire. The incident appears to be the most violent in the region since the PKK Kurdistan Workers Party and the Turkish state declared a ceasefire in March. PKK militants started withdrawing to bases in northern Iraq last month as part of the deal. But there's been little sign of progress this months with public attention focused on weeks of broader and often violent anti-government protests across Turkey.
