Amnesty urges compensation for Turkey's displaced Kurds

Thousands of people have fled the historic Sur district of Diyarbakir, in south-eastern Turkey, because of fighting.

Most of Sur - a Unesco world heritage site - lies in ruins after clashes between Turkish troops and the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Amnesty International has urged Turkey to pay compensation to those who fled areas under curfew.

It estimates the total of displaced people in the conflict zone to be half a million. Selin Girit reports from Diyarbakir.
