Kurds and leftist Turks march in Paris to protest Turkish airstrikes on the PKK in Iraq
More than 1,000 Kurds and leftist Turks have marched in Paris to protest airstrikes by Turkey on Kurdish militant camps in northern Iraq.
One banner held high at Saturday's march read, "To hit the PKK is collaborating with Daesh," a reference to the Kurdistan Workers' Party whose affiliates have helped battle the Islamic State group of Iraq and Syria, called "Daesh" in France.
The march was originally called to protest Monday's ISIS attack in the southeast Turkish town of Suruc that killed 32 people. But Turkish airstrikes on PKK camps in Iraq changed the agenda of the protest march from the Gare de l'Est train station to the Place de la Republique.
