The peace process between the Turkish government and the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has stalled indefinitely. Every day, PKK fighters and Turkish soldiers are killed by fighting, air strikes and attacks. In some places, such as Istanbul's flashpoint Gazi district, youths have clashed with police over Ankara's hardline stance against the Kurds. The scuffles have sometimes resulted in injury or death.
