More Newroz Violence

The Turkish press are confirming two Newroz-related deaths, including the death of the man fatally wounded in Van on Saturday. Protests in İzmir also led to violent protests, injuries, and detentions. Both papers, but especially Today's Zaman, play up provocation by pro-PKK Kurds, but in no way criticize police action as excessive.
