The Turkish court issued an arrest warrant for Kurdish politicians after they failed to appear in a court over alleged PKK links.

The Democratic Society Party (DTP) was closed under the Turkey's Constitutional Court decision over PKK links.

The warrant orders Turkish police to arrest the now-defunct DTP's former co- chairs Ahmet Turk and Aysel Tugluk, as well as two deputies Selahattin Demirtas and Emine Ayna.

Four members of the Democratic Society Party (DTP) did not attend to a court hearing for the trials in which they are facing charges of membership in the outlawed PKK. The suspects face jail sentences of between five and 15 years.
