BERLIN — Germany’s top security official on Tuesday banned two publishers for allegedly belonging to a banned Kurdish organization.
German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said he banned the publishers Mezopotamien Verlag und Vertrieb GmbH and the MIR Multimedia GmbH because they support the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK.
Tahir Kocer, a chairman of the group, accused Germany of trying to suppress Kurdish culture.
Germany is home to around 14,500 PKK supporters, according to the Interior Ministry.
