3 Kurds detained in Germany after protesting against Turkey

(MENAFN) After Kurdish demonstrators protesting Turkish military offensives in northern Syria clashed with police, three people have been arrested in Germany's northern city of Hannover.

The DPA news agency reported that some of the estimated 11,000 protesters threw plastic bottles at police Saturday and threatened them with the flagpoles they were waving.

The demonstrators were also protesting German arms sales to Turkey and chanted slogans like "German tanks out of Kurdistan!" and called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a "terrorist."

Some demonstrators waved flags showing the leader of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party, known as the PKK, and police say they are evaluating videos to see if they can determine their identity.
