DOZENS of Kurdish protesters broke into the grounds of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague today.
The demonstrators, who waved Kurdish flags but were swiftly rounded up by Dutch police, accuse the OPCW of ignoring allegations that Turkey has used chemical weapons against Kurdish communities in northern Iraq. Turkey denies the claim.
A Kurdish group called DEM NED organised the protest. It follows claims from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that Turkey has repeatedly used chemical weapons as part of its war against the group, in which it regularly launches cross-border bombings and raids into Iraqi territory.
Photos from the protest published by Dutch media outlet Regio 15 showed at least a dozen police vehicles lined up outside OPCW headquarters and some 30 protesters outside the building holding up banners and flags.
