KURDS IN Germany turned their fury on the Turkish community yesterday as the government in Bonn vowed to clamp down on the outlawed Kurdish Workers Party and deport activists.

A day after the shooting at the Israeli Consulate in Berlin, police issued arrest warrants for 28 demonstrators as the media and opposition parties demanded draconian measures and mass expulsions.

The tougher line was in evidence yesterday, police in Berlin banning a procession in memory of the three Kurds shot dead on Wednesday.

In Bremen, a Turkish travel agency was fire-bombed. In Munster, masked Kurdish youths raided a Turkish teashop, while in Heilbronn the patrons of a Turkish club were attacked by a Kurdish gang armed with baseball bats. Four Turks were injured.
