France: 3 Kurdish women ‘executed’ in Paris


PARIS (AP) — Three Kurdish women, including one of the founders of a militant group battling Turkish troops since 1984, were “executed” at a Kurdish center in Paris, the interior minister said Thursday. The news prompted angry crowds of Kurds to flood into the area.

It was not immediately clear who killed the women, who belonged to the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, a group that Turkey and its Western allies, including the United States and the European Union, consider a terrorist organization.

The slayings came as Turkey was holding peace talks with the group to try to persuade it to disarm. A Turkish lawmaker claimed the women were slain in a dispute between PKK factions, while some Kurdish protesters and a Kurdish lawmaker in Turkey claimed the Turkish government was involved.
