Pro-Kurdish protesters and Turkish police clashed in Diyarkabir on Monday, as demonstrators gathered to march in solidarity with the 128 people who were killed in a twin bomb blast at a rally in Ankara on October 10. Police sprayed water cannons and fired teargas at the crowd, some of whom were throwing objects at the police vehicles. At least 128 people were killed and more than 200 injured after two explosions rocked the Turkish capital. The bombs targeted the venue of the 'Labour, Peace, Democracy' rally, which was scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time (07:00 GMT). The rally was planned by Turkey's biggest trade union in protest against the Turkish government's policy towards the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced three days of national mourning on Saturday, and said there was evidence that two suicide bombers had carried out the attacks. Selahattin Demirtas, the co-chair of the People's Democratic Party (HDP), said: "This is not an attack against the unity of our state and nation. This is an attack by our nation against our people." The Turkish state have denied any role in the attack and vowed to bring those responsible to justice.
