Turkey Opposition Parties Delay Kurdish Rebel Peace Plan
Opposition parties in Turkey have delayed the government's announcement of its plan to end a conflict in the mainly Kurdish south-east.
Interior Minister Besir Atalay ran out of time to present the measures in parliament as nationalist MPs jeered, the BBC reported.
The plans are thought to include some Kurdish language education, restoring Kurdish place names and more freedom to use Kurdish in election campaigns.
The announcement is now expected on Thursday.
Some 40 000 people have been killed in the 25-year Kurdish fight for autonomy.
The government of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently been seeking opposition support for a negotiated settlement to end the insurgency by the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK).
It first announced the plan three months ago but has yet to publicise details.
