With local elections in Turkey set for this coming Sunday (3/31), the vote is seen as a crucial test for the pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party, or HDP, in the country's predominantly Kurdish southeast. Most of the HDP's mayors and parliamentary deputies are in jail, accused of supporting a Kurdish insurgency. Still, as Dorian Jones reports from Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s Kurdish region, HDP candidates are running for office.
