French: Turkish suspect probed in Kurd killings

French prosecutors have filed preliminary murder and terrorism charges against a Turkish citizen who worked as a driver for one of three Kurdish activists who were gunned down this month in Paris, an official said Monday. The suspect, Omer Guney, 30, drove for the most prominent victim, Sakine Cansiz, a founder of the PKK.


Guney maintains his innocence and has told investigators he has been a member of the PKK for two years, Prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters, adding however that there is "serious and corroborating evidence" to show that Guney had a role in the Jan. 9 killings. (AP)
