Parade threatens PKK 'peace' move

Victory parade by returning fighters may derail peace efforts between Turkey and Kurds.

    A victory parade by returning PKK fighters who were part of a "peace" group who crossed over the border from Iraq into Turkey last week is threatening to derail a new phase in relations between Ankara and the Kurdish population.

    For the past six months, the Turkish government and the country's Kurdish movement have been trying to work out a path to peace, after 25 years of armed conflict.

    From Diyarbakir in southeastern Turkey, Anita McNaught looks at where the two sides go from here.
