Turkish parliament erupts in chaos over removal of pro-Kurdish mayor

Lawmakers brawled in Turkey’s parliament on Tuesday during protests against the removal of a pro-Kurdish mayor in the southeast, video footage showed.

Tensions boiled over a day after the government announced the replacement of the mayor from the DEM party, which authorities accuse of links to outlawed PKK Kurdish militants.

 In the southeastern city of Hakkari, eyewitnesses told AFP that several protesters were also hurt and detained on Tuesday after security forces moved in during a demonstration against the mayor’s removal.
