Posted on | June 6, 2015 | No Comments

TURKEY: An explosion has further rattled Diyarbakir, a city in
eastern Turkey that’s largely Kurdish and was once in the heartland
of the region’s Armenian and Christian communities. The city has
been in turmoil with protests over upcoming parliamentary elections
on Sunday that could prove pivotal to the future of Turkey. If the
Kurdish parties headquartered in Diyarbakir win enough of the vote,
they could check the executive power grab underway by President
Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
