Over a thousand Kurds clashed with police Tuesday in Turkey's southeastern Batman Province on the eve of Nowruz, the Kurdish New Year. Police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse the crowd who hurled stones, firecrackers and Molotov cocktails. The clashes broke out when the group was prevented from observing the traditional spring festival, which also marks the New Year.
