The Daily Mail reports that armed Communist Terrorists named the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Front took a prosecutor hostage in Turkey today in response to, what the group calls, inaction on the death of a protester killed by a tear gas canister over a year ago:
“The emergency began at 2.36pm local time (12.36 GMT) when members of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front stormed into the office of Mr Kiraz. Images of a masked militant holding a gun to Mr Kiraz’s head were then posted on the group’s Facebook page, along with a demand for police to confess on live TV within the hour.
“Armed police rushed to the scene and were shown escorting court officials out of the building, but there was no sign of Mr Kiraz before the deadline arrived and live TV feeds were cut.
“Shots were then heard from inside the building, according to the Dogan news agency.
“The prosecutor is leading an investigation into the death of 15-year-old Berkin Elvan who was severely wounded after being hit on the head by a tear-gas canister fired by a police officer during anti-government protests in Istanbul in June 2013.
“After spending 269 days in a coma, Elvan eventually died on March 11 last year. His death, and the subsequent investigation, have since become a rallying point for the country’s far-Left.”
Police have since raided the Prosecutor’s office.
