Ocalan blames Turkish repression

THE KURDISH rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan for the first time sought to blame Turkish repression for the 14-year armed uprising he led, when he made his final statement to a Turkish court yesterday. "Even the smallest obstacle is enough to spark these uprisings," Mr Ocalan said. He stands accused of trying to break up the Turkish state. A verdict in the trial is expected by the end of the month.
