Pro-Kurdish party says MPs' detentions mark 'end of democracy' in

ISTANBUL, Nov 4, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 04th Nov, 2016 ) - The detention of a dozen MPs from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) including its co-leaders marks the "end of democracy" in Turkey, the party said in a statement Friday.
