During the 1980s and '90s, large parts of Turkey's east and southeast (but not the Black Sea area) were the scene of bitter fighting between the separatists of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and Turkish security forces. The fighting has largely stopped, which has allowed tourism in the region to get off the ground again, but there have been several isolated incidents recently, particularly near the Turkey-Iraq border. Usually these events have occurred in remote areas where few tourists, let alone Turks, go.
