The logo of the Diyarbakır Municipality was removed on Saturday from the facade of city hall following the arrest last month of elected Co-mayors Gultan Kışanak and Fırat Anlı.

The co-mayors of Diyarbakır, the largest Kurdish city in Turkey, are accused of terrorism and ties to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

A government-appointed trustee replaced the co-mayors, but the reason for the removal of the logo has not yet been explained by officials.
