one killed in clashes in Turkey’s south-east
At least one person died in Turkey’s southern province Adana on Sunday during a protest against the killing of two protesters during a protest against the construction of a military outpost in the southeastern Lice district of Diyarbakir last week. Officials said the person died after an improvised explosive device exploded in his hand. Riot police intervened with water cannon and tear gas during the protests and the protesters responded with fireworks, stones and molotov cocktails. Special operations forces arrived at the scene after some masked people opened fire.
