Turkey's pro-Kurdish opposition announced a partial boycott of parliament on Sunday, saying it was "halting its legislative efforts" after its leaders and other lawmakers were detained.

The Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), the second-largest opposition grouping in Turkey's parliament, said it would not fully withdraw, but its deputies would stop participating in sessions of the legislature or meetings of parliamentary commissions.

"After discussions with our parliamentary group and our central executive board, we have decided to halt our legislative efforts in light of everything that has happened," party spokesman Ayhan Bilgen said in a statement read out in front of its offices in Diyarbakir and broadcast on the Internet.

HDP officials would consult with the party's supporters, many of whom are in the largely Kurdish southeast, and could then consider a full withdrawal from parliament, he said.
