French police make breakthrough in Kurdish killings

World Bulletin / News Desk

French police investigating the murders of Kurdish activists Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Soylemez, who were killed in January 2013 in Paris, have made an important breakthrough.

It has been found that suspect Omer Guner, who is accused of the murders, secretly snuck into a Kurdish association building, where he took photographs of 329 identity cards belonging to members. Later, he tried to delete the photographs, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

After retrieving the photographs from his phone, police found that he had one by one taken snapshots of 329 membership cards, including their names addresses and telephone numbers.

While Guney accepted responsibility for the photographs, he has claimed that he was working for an insider in the armed Kurdish rebel group PKK, but reports in France have linked him to Turkish nationalist groups.
