    In the wake of growing terror attacks and rising calls for Turkish action in northern Iraq against the PKK, the Turkish Republic yesterday celebrated its 84th anniversary, with cities and towns across the nation covered in more flags and more ceremony than in many previous years.

    In many spots across Turkey yesterday, ceremonies commemorating the 84th anniversary of the Turkish Republic turned automatically into anti-terror demonstrations, with thousands marching and shouting slogans in support of the Turkish military, and the many young martyrs that have died in recent weeks of fighting.
    The first official ceremonies in honor of October 29 took place yesterday morning at Ankara's Anitkabir monument, the masoleum built for Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. According to officials, the number of visitors to the Anitkabir was well over 400,000 yesterday alone.
