N THE QANDIL MOUNTAINS, Iraq (Reuters) - Separatist Kurds want to use Turkey's rift with the United States over war in Iraq to win U.S. acceptance of their cause and add pressure for Kurdish cultural and political rights.

The brother of captured rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan said U.S. anger over being denied use of Turkish territory for its assault on Iraq was a window of opportunity for Turkey's Kurds.
