Turkey Holds Rally Denouncing Rebels, U.S.
by Staff

Thousands of Turks held a rally in Ankara this weekend denouncing separatist Kurdish guerrillas for attacks, and the United States for its response to them.

Attacks have been escalating in recent weeks, and Turkey has been pressuring the United States and Iraq to crack down on rebel bases in northern Iraq, Turkey's Alalam Satellite TV reported.

"Down with the (United States) and their collaborators," the crowd chanted in Ankara's Tandogan Square.

Turkey has long complained of U.S. inaction, and with the escalating violence, has called for an eradication of the bases for the Kurdistan Workers' Party in Iraq, Alalam reported.

Turkey has been battling Kurdish rebels since 1984 in a violent conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people. (c) UPI
