10,000 march in Istanbul against terrorism

More than 10,000 people take part in an anti-terrorism rally in Turkey’s capital Ankara on Thursday, as the army continues a major offensive against Kurdish militants who have killed dozens of security force members since July.

The non-partisan rally was organized by a coalition of NGOs, trade unions and business groups, under the slogan “Yes to unity and solidarity, no to terror.”

It comes three days before another demonstration on the same theme in Istanbul, to be addressed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
