Turkey's deputy prime minister says his government will compensate the families of 35 civilians mistakenly killed last month in an air strike aimed at Kurdish rebels.

Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said compensation will be paid to the families of the victims in a few days but did not specify a date.

Last week, Turkish F-16 jets, guided by intelligence from drones, hit a group of Kurdish smugglers in northern Iraq, leading to one of the highest single-day civilian death tolls in Turkey's decades-old conflict with the rebels.

The deaths provoked several days of violent demonstrations in mostly Kurdish cities in the region.
