Kurdish demonstrators protest in Sulaima

Kurdish demonstrators protest in Sulaimaniyah on December 30, 2011 against a Turkish air raid a day before which killed 35 villagers near the Turkey-Iraq border. Turkey's military command said it carried out an air strike on suspected Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) militants after a spy drone spotted a group moving toward its sensitive southeastern border under cover of darkness in an area known to be used by militants, but admitted that the strike could have been a 'blunder' that killed civilians and not Kurdish separatists.
