Turkey seeks prosecution of Kurdish MPs over meeting

ISTANBUL - A Turkish prosecutor has called for 10 Kurdish deputies to be investigated on charges of aiding a terrorist group after they were filmed embracing militants at an impromptu roadside meeting, state-run Anatolian news agency said on Wednesday.
The incident happened in August when Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants set up a roadblock and stopped a Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) convoy in southeast Turkey.
Newspaper photos at the time showed the MPs embracing five militants, who had rifles slung over their shoulders.
