Turks and Kurds attack Greece over Ocalan

Greece has come under attack from both the Turkish Government and the Kurds over its involvement with the Kurdish separatist leader, Abdullah Ocalan.

The Turkish Prime Minister, Bulent Ecevit, said Greece had become a shelter and a training centre for terrorists, and condemned its behaviour as unforgivable.

At the same time, the three women aides of Mr Ocalan who have been granted asylum in Athens accused Greece of betraying their leader and handing him over to Turkey. One of the aides alleged that senior Greek officials had been involved in an international conspiracy that led to the capture of Mr Ocalan in Kenya by Turkish commandos.
