Political Assassinations? The Turkish Secret Service and the Murdered PKK Activists

Was Erdogan’s spy agency responsible for the murder of Sakine Cansiz, co-founder of the PKK, and two other activists in Paris? Following the murders, a young Turk called Omer Guney was arrested. He is suspected of being an undercover Turkish agent, whose mission was to target Kurdish officials in Europe. A tape was leaked of a conversation between Guney and his suspected handlers in which they discussed tactics and other potential targets.
