Turkey lifts week-long curfew on Kurdish city

Ankara, Sep 12 (IANS) Turkish authorities on Saturday lifted a week-long curfew imposed on the predominantly Kurdish southeastern city of Cizrey.

Twenty civilians have died since the curfew was imposed, eyewitnesses said, although the government has said only one civilian died and that the rest were militants.
