Tensions flare between Turkey's Kurds

Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeast has been rocked by fatal confrontations between Islamist and nationalist Kurds. The violence was sparked by fighting just across the Syrian border, where terror group "Islamic State" is continuing to lay siege to the Kurdish city of Kobani. The clashes are resurrecting decades-old wounds between religious and secular Kurds.
