Kurdish rebels on Friday gave Turkey a “final warning” to take steps that would move forward peace talks aimed at ending a 30-year old conflict that has claimed tens of thousands of lives. The Kurdistan Workers Party, which is known as PKK and has been fighting Turkey for autonomy, declared a cease-fire in March and began withdrawing fighters from Turkey in May as part of peace efforts initiated last year.(AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici, File)
