STRASBOURG (AA) – French police in Strasbourg arrested 14 supporters of the terrorist PKK on Tuesday for rioting, attacking the police, and other unlawful behavior.
Police sources told Anadolu Agency that during a protest rally, the terrorist group supporters tried to break into the Council of Europe and European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) buildings, damaging them in the process.
A group of people near the buildings attacked the police by throwing stones and sticks, injuring seven gendarmes, and the police used tear gas and clubs and arrested 14 people in response.
The rally was reportedly meant to protest the prison conditions of Abdullah Ocalan, the terrorist group’s convicted leader.
The terrorist PKK supporters came from France, Germany, Switzerland, and other nearby countries.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, it has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
