Pro-Kurdish protesters demonstrated in Cologne on Saturday to show their solidarity with hunger strikers in Turkey, and to mark the 20th anniversary of PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan's capture.

Protesters marched through the city towards Ebert Plaza, while holding banners and Kurdish flags.

Ayten Kaplan from The Left Party called on the governments involved in the 'complot' of Ocalan's capture to take responsibility.

"They are co-perpetrators and they promote the Erdogan's politics and pull through [despite] the isolation, so they have to reverse their politics and say it's enough," she said.
