Funeral ceremonies of three Kurdish women, who had been killed in Paris on Wednesday, will be held in Turkey next week.

Officials told AA that the three women's funeral ceremonies would be held in Tunceli, Kahramanmaras and Diyarbakir provinces in Turkey upon demands by their families.

Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Soylemez were killed on Wednesday evening at the Kurdish Information Center in Paris. They were shot in head and their bodies were found on Thursday.

The date of funeral ceremonies will be clear after autopsies are completed.

Meanwhile, French authorities responded positively to Turkey's offer to help to solve the murders, and they asked some information about the victims.

Turkish Embassy in Paris conveyed the demanded information.

On the other hand, militant PKK's supporters held a rally in Paris in order to protest the killings.

Turkey's Peace & Democracy Party (BDP) chairman Selahattin Demirtas and deputy chairperson Gulten Kisanak as well as several party members also participated in the rally.

Three Kurdish women were found dead on Thursday morning at Kurdish Information Center in Paris, reportedly shot in the head --what appeared to be an execution-style killing.

One of the victims was identified as Sakine Cansiz, one of the founding members of the militant PKK organization.

Turkish intelligence officials have been conducting talks with the PKK's jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan, in a bid to disarm the PKK.

PKK is recognized as a terrorist organization also by the United States and the European Union.

The conflict between PKK and Turkish troops has cost thousands of lives since 1984.
