Turkish nationalists protesting China's treatment of ethnic Uighur Muslims attacked a group of Korean tourists in the heart of Istanbul's old city on Saturday, mistaking them for Chinese nationals.

Hundreds of angry protesters marched towards the Topkapi Palace on the banks of the Bosphorus Strait in a show of solidarity with the Turkic Uigurs, who complain of cultural and religious suppression under Chinese rule.

Shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is the Greatest), they attacked some Koreans outside the Topkapi Palace, which is visited by thousands of tourists every day.

The tourists were rescued by riot police, who fired tear gas to disperse the attackers, members of the notorious far-right Grey Wolves closely affiliated with Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).

Video footage by Dogan news agency showed a distraught Korean tourist telling reporters: "I'm not Chinese, I'm Korean."

The incident came amid a row between Ankara and Beijing over Turkish media reports of restrictions on Muslim Uighurs worshipping and fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.

Turkey this week summoned the Chinese ambassador to convey its concern over the alleged restrictions. Beijing in turn denied the allegations and demanded that Turkey clarify its statements.

A total of 173 Uighurs arrived in Turkey from Thailand on Tuesday where they were being held after fleeing China. Beijing expressed displeasure with Turkey on Friday for accepting the group.

Over the last week hundreds of Turkish nationalists across the country have demonstrated to protest China's alleged Ramadan bans.

A popular Chinese restaurant in Istanbul was attacked on Wednesday and had its windows smashed by a group protesters who did not realise it was Turkish-owned and that its chef was an ethnic Uighur.

A predominantly Muslim country, Turkey shares linguistic and religious links with the Uighur community, which has several associations here.

A bunch of idiots. I'm nationalist but grey wolves and MHP have been out of their mind nowadays. Allahu Akbar is their usual slogan, but they literally have nothing to do with religion, I mean, they're not islamists. They attacked an islamist newspaper's headquarters for insulting Ataturk. But anyways I kinda despise them, they seem pretty much confused and don't know what they are doing. Grey Wolves feed on lost youth. Fuckin' douchebags attacked our kin, brother Koreans.

I thought MHP was trying to evolve into a centre-right party, they need to disband this paramilitar organization.

Attacking a group of innocent people who have nothing to do with the Uighurs plight is a fine example of pan-Turanian bullshit.

I'm an Arab, and I'm an atheist as well, and really, it depends on which Arab country you are referring to. If you wore that in Lebanon, nobody gives a crap since the nation has freedom of speech, and a lot of the populace there are atheists. Anyway, i was referring to that pan-Turkic ideology that a lot of these so called nationalists adhere that attacked a group of innocent tourists who were just minding their own business. Any pan-ideologies are just as worst as the rest including pan-Arabism.

The group shouldn't be dismembered, they are the only group of Turks present in the streets and countering Communists and Kurds. What they did here seems very ignorant and intolerant though.
