Families of minors who have been kidnapped by PKK rebels in south-eastern Turkey gathered in the city of Diyarbakir on Monday to protest for the return of their children.

Calling for the help of the Turkish authorities to find their loved ones, the families pleaded for the return of college students Halime Gunduz, Firat Aydin and Habip Temel.

Halime Gunduz and Firat Aydin have not been seen since April 23 after they went on a picnic organized by PKK sympathizers. Habip Temel has been missing since April 4 after attending a ceremony marking jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan's birthday.

The families, who have requested a meeting with the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) lawmaker to seek help in securing the release of the youths but are yet to receive a reply, on Tuesday started a sit-in protest at the city's Yasam Park.

Turkish NGO Mazlum-der also called for the release of the minors, citing a Geneva agreement signed on October 5, 2013 to protect children from participating in armed conflicts or joining armed groups.
