Turkish president seeks to ease Kurdish tensions

Turkey's president traveled to the country's Kurdish-dominated southeast Thursday, a day after the country's civilian and military leaders rejected the minority's demands for autonomy and recognition of their language.


President Abdullah Gul's visit to Diyarbakir, the largest city in the southeast, was pre-planned. He has cautioned against exploiting the issue and urged Kurdish politicians to act more responsibly. (AP)
