Three police chiefs were suspended on Thursday in connection to an incident where a Turkish flag was torn down from inside a military compound during protests in Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province last week.

Speaking to an Anadolu Agency correspondent Diyarbakir Governor Mustafa Cahit Kirac said that there is an ongoing, extensive investigation into the events of June 8.

A masked protester removed the flag on Sunday following the deaths of two men in an illegal demonstration against the construction of a military outpost in the Lice district of Diyarbakir.
