Kurdish protest denouncing reforms turns into clashes in Turkey

Protests turn violent in Turkey as Kurdish demonstrators took to the streets to denounce a government reform package. Last week, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan unveiled a series of reforms meant to revive a stalled Kurdish peace plan. But there was little peace on the streets in southeast Turkey. Peace talks began almost a year ago, and in March rebels called a halt to hostilities. The ceasefire had largely held. But frustration is now spilling into the streets, for a peace plan that that cost Erdogan plenty of political capital.
