Protests turn violent in Turkey as Kurdish demonstrators took to the streets to denounce a government reform package.

Last week, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan unveiled a series of reforms meant to revive a stalled Kurdish peace plan.

But there was little peace on the streets in southeast Turkey.

Peace talks began almost a year ago, and in March rebels called a halt to hostilities. The ceasefire had largely held.

But frustration is now spilling into the streets, for a peace plan that that cost Erdogan plenty of political capital.
