This is a news dispatch I made in 2014, reporting from the ground in Istanbul where Kurdish youth were rioting due to the ISIS siege of Kobane in Syria. Back then relations between the Turkish state and the Kurds were slightly better. The Kurds were angered that Turkey didn't let them across the border to help the fight in Kobane. The Kobane riots in Istanbul were one of the catalysts that led to a full scale conflict in the southeast of Turkey the following year. 

I worked as the on-screen correspondent and producer.
