BERLIN: As Germany scrambles to contain a diplomatic row with Turkey over a comedian's mocking of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, officials are growing worried about another byproduct of their Faustian migrant pact with Ankara: an upsurge in violence between nationalist Turks and militant Kurds on German soil. Germany is home to about 3 million people of Turkish origin. Roughly one in four are ethnic Kurds who came to Germany to work in the 1960s and '70s, or as refugees fleeing violence in the 1980s and '90s.Clashes between Turks and Kurds in Germany are not new.
