Back to normal after this afternoon’s violent vandalism by Kurdish activists at the Council of Europe’s Agora building. Everybody is entitled to peaceful demonstration, but violence and vandalism are unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/Ew3THlXGPb— Daniel Holtgen (@CoESpokesperson) February 25, 2019
Protesters broke the windows and doors of the Council of Europe building and set fire to the rubbish bins outside before clashing with police.
Three police officers were injured during the clashes and 43 terror organisation sympathisers were detained.
In its 30-year terrorist campaign, the PKK has taken some 40,000 lives, including women and children. The YPG is its Syrian branch.
