A nationalist assailant has killed at least seven members of a Kurdish family living in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region in an apparent hate crime, the Turkish media reported.
Te lawyer representing the deceased family said that although the family was harassed several times before, the Turkish authorities failed to take any measures.
“This was an entirely racist attack … the judiciary and the authorities are responsible for what has happened,” Karabulut told Arti TV.
A footage leaked from a surveillance camera shows the terrifying moment the assailant murders the family members with a gun and then tries to burn their house down. The victims were laid to rest on Saturday.
