Okay, it's snowing here but they're bleeding in Paris:
Kurdish activists shot dead in Paris
Three Kurdish women activists have been found dead with bullet wounds to the neck and chest in the Kurdistan information centre in Paris. One of the women found in the early hours of Thursday morning was said to be Sakine Cansiz, a co-founder of the Kurdistan Workers' party (PKK)...Another victim of the Paris shootings, Fidan Dogan, was part of the Kurdistan National Congress, based in Brussels. The third was a young activist.
...The French interior minister, Manuel Valls, was at the scene and described the killings as "intolerable" and "unacceptable." He said French anti-terror police would help with the inquiry. French police sources told reporters that the crime-scene suggested "an execution", but the circumstances and motive remain unclear.
In this decades-long conflict between the Turkish state and the PKK seeking Kurdish independence
, has killed about 40,000 people since the 1980s.
If Turkey is involved in this incident, what does that say about its involvement in our own Marmara Affair and its criticism of Israel attempting to protect itself?
Isn't Paris much further away from Turkey than Gaza is to Israel?
