25-year-old Hakan Buksur was murdered by police who fired live ammunition against protestors who took to the streets in the Varto district of Muş earlier today in solidarity with Kobanê, and in protest against the ongoing ISIS attacks.
As clashes between demonstrators and police continue for hours today, police are using live ammunition on the mass at Cumhuriyet Avenue. Buksur has been shot dead, his brain blown out at the scene as police opened fire from a panzer vehicle.
While Buksur’s body has been taken to hospital by the people, tension in the district continues to rise.
This is all going on Erdogan says “Kobane is about to fall,” and that ground troops are needed, yet the Turkish army is just sitting at the border watching.
