The deaths of three Kurdish activists in Paris has spotlighted the complicated relationship between France, Turkey, and the Kurdistan Workers' Party. On Saturday, thousands of Kurds from across Europe arrived in Paris for a march to demand justice.
Turkey's leader, meanwhile, demanded to know why one of the victims — a founder of a Kurdish rebel group — had been granted asylum in France.
Crowds of Kurds streamed to Paris from throughout Europe, marching through the neighborhood where Sakine Cansiz's body was found inside a Kurdish information center along with two other activists. Cansiz was a founder of the Kurdish rebel group that has been battling the Turkish government for three decades.
Kurdish activists have demanded that Turkey help investigate who carried out the killings.
