TURKEY-KURDS-UNREST-DRUG-TRAFFICKING

Marijuana bags are pictured in skips during the Turkish gendarmerie press presentation in Diyarbakir on December 15, 2012. The Turkish army has seized more than 20 tonnes of marijuana from Kurdish rebels in what local authorities said on December 15, 2012 was one of the biggest ever crackdowns on 'terrorist income. 'We have unearthed 21-tonnes of marijuana, as well as several cells filled with ammunition and explosives,' said Mustafa Toprak, governor of the Kurdish-majority Diyarbakir province in Turkey's southeast. The stash, with an estimated street value of 17 million euros ($22.4 million), was seized after hundreds of special security forces were deployed Thursday.
