Hundreds of Kurds took over offices of Kurdish organisations throughout Germany yesterday in protest at the banning of the separatist Kurdistan Workers Party by German authorities, police said, AFP reports from Bonn.

In Frankfurt, three police were slightly wounded and 18 Kurds detained for identity checks when police tried to end a protest by about 200 Kurds. Swiss authorities, meanwhile, expelled several Kurds and barred entry into the country to several leaders of Kurdish organisations.
