Several dozen Kurdish protesters barricaded inside the Greek embassy in London are reportedly preparing to give themselves up.
The protesters have said that those inside the embassy, who are holding a junior official hostage, will make a statement to the press at midday before leaving the building an hour later.
It was initially believed that officials in the Greek embassy in Kenya had been involved in the arrest of Mr Ocalan, although this has not been confirmed.
However on Thursday the Greek foreign minister resigned amid accusations of mishandling the affair along with the public order and interior ministers.
The protesters also said they were on hunger strike and appeared on the roof holding what could have been petrol bombs.
However, the Greek hostage, security guard Babis Patsouris, said he was being treated well.
Late on Wednesday evening, a demonstrator tried to set himself alight. He doused his clothes in petrol but police dragged himself away before he could light them.
Fifteen-year-old Nejla Kanteper is recovering from severe burns after she set herself on fire at the protest on Tuesday.
The arrest of Mr Ocalan sparked spontaneous protests around the world. Three Kurdish demonstrators were shot dead in Berlin, Germany, as they tried to storm the Israeli embassy.
