Brawl between Turks and Kurds breaks out at Germany's Hannover airport

A mass brawl has broken out at a German airport in Hannover, sparked by demonstrators protesting about Turkish military action against Kurdish fighters. 

German police said up to 180 protestors and passengers clashed after sympathizers of the PKK attempted to hold an unauthorized demonstration at the airport, the Daily Sabah reported.

Multiple videos posted on social media showed the pro-PKK protestors shouting anti-Turkey slogans and punching Turkish passengers following a verbal exchange.

The police had to use pepper spray to separate both sides. At least two people were injured during the brawl.
