Kids with guns – Diyabakir

These children in Diyarbakir town of East Turkey are holding

toy guns.

But the threats are real.

Diyabakir is home to the Kurdish people, who fought unsuccessfully for their independence in the 90s from Turkey.

But even before that, the town has been invaded by romans, byzantine, ottomans and armenians -a violent upheaval each time.

The Kurds

who are spread around east turkey, Iran and Iraq remain

a nation without a country.
