Kurdish PKK co-founder Sakine Cansiz shot dead in Paris
Three Kurdish women activists - including a co-founder of the militant separatist PKK - have been found dead with gunshot wounds to the head in the Kurdish Institute of Paris.

The bodies of Sakine Cansiz and two others were found on Thursday.

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls called the killings "intolerable".
Really? Intolerable? Well then Mr. Minister, what are you going to do about it?
The motive for the shootings is unclear.
Bow howdy, maybe it was a jilted girlfriend. Or a mugging...
Some 39,999 40,000 people have died in the 25-year conflict between the Turkish state and the PKK. However, Turkey has recently begun talks with the jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan, with the aim of persuading the group to disarm.
Wouldn't stop the Turks from whacking a big boy. Or a splinter group trying to make a name for itself...

#2  Not only were the killings intolerable, but they were also uncalled for and inappropriate.
