Kurdish protesters rioted in various parts of Istanbul. They threw stones at police and demanded the release of the leader of the PKK Abdullah Ocalan, said MIGnews.com.

Ideologue of the PKK was captured in February 1999 at the residence of the Greek ambassador in Kenya. He has consistently advocated the establishment of autonomy in southeastern Turkey where the Kurdish population live compactly.


The Supreme Court has sentenced him to life imprisonment. Currently, he is being held in jail on the island Imraly.
