Many made hand gestures associated with the extreme right-wing group Grey Wolves. The protest was held a day after three Kurdish lawmakers visited Abdullah Ocalan, the jailed leader of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), at his island prison, the second such visit since the peace negotiations resumed late last year.
