The outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party's 30-year conflict with Turkey is coming to an end, the group's jailed leader said on Saturday, hailing the start of a new democratic process in the country. The PKK, which for three decades fought a bloody insurgency for self-rule for Turkey's Kurdish minority that cost 40,000 lives, launched its armed struggle on August 15th, 1984. But the group's jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan said in a statement from his cell, on the prison island of Imrali in the Sea of Marmara, that Turkey was now on the verge of "historic developments" after last week's presidential elections.
