Kurd protest in Paris demands justice in killings

Crowds of Kurds streamed to Paris from throughout Europe, marching through the neighborhood where the body of Sakine Cansiz was found inside a Kurdish information center along with two other activists. Cansiz was a founder of the Kurdish rebel group PKK.

 

Kurdish activists have accused Turkey in the deaths while Turkish officials suggested the killings may be part of an internal feud or an attempt to derail government peace talks with the jailed leader of the PKK. The deaths have put France in a difficult position as it tries to improve ties with Turkey. (AP)
