Hundreds of Kurdish militants in jails across Turkey ended a 68-day-old hunger strike on Sunday in response to a call from their jailed leader, an association representing the inmates' families said in a statement.

Militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Ocalan's appeal for them to end the protest - which was staged to demand an end to his isolation in an island prison south of Istanbul - was announced by his brother on Saturday.
