Kurdish women wave a giant flag of the PKK (Kurdish Workers Party) while awaiting a statement by jailed Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan during celebrations of Nowruz, the Persian New Year festival, on March 21 in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir. In the statement, Öcalan called for a ceasefire, raising expectations for an end to the three-decade conflict with Turkey.
