TurkeyOne person was killed on Tuesday in southeast Turkey when police clashed with hundreds of pro-Kurdish protesters demonstrating over the onslaught by ISIL on the Syrian border town of Kobani.

There were conflicting reports about how the 25-year-old protester was killed in the clashes in the city of Mus, with the Hurriyet newspaper saying the protester died of a gunshot wound after being caught in crossfire.

But NTV television said he was killed after being struck in the head by a tear gas cannister fired by police to disperse the protesters.
