PKK terror group attack Council of Europe HQ in Strasbourg,   43 detained

Three police officers were injured Monday after supporters of the PKK terror group attacked the headquarters of the Council of Europe in the French city of Strasbourg.

The PKK supporters staged a rally to protest the conditions of imprisonment of the terror group's jailed leader Abdullah Öcalan, which then turned violent.

The terrorist sympathizers hurled rocks and projectiles, breaking the Agora building's windows and glass doors, and set trash bins on fire. Police were also targeted by the demonstrators.

Forty-three PKK supporters were detained over the attack on the Council of Europe building.

Director of Communications at the Council of Europe Daniel Holtgen said the terror supporters' "violence and vandalism are unacceptable."

Intensive security measures have been taken in the area the demonstration took place in.
