Those 37,000 killed in the Turkey-PKK conflict

I'm trying to find a really good breakdown of how many of those people were Kurds and how many were Turkish, but it looks like the majority of those killed were Kurdish, killed by the Turks. The figure of 37,000 dead in Turkey because of conflict with the PKK is being used to justify Turkey's invasion of the Kurdish region in northern Iraq. There's a lot of irony in that.
