Three Kurdish women found shot dead in Paris

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls told reporters in Paris the three women had been "without doubt executed" with gunshots to the head early Thursday and described the killings as "totally unacceptable." Their bodies were found in the Information Center for Kurdistan in Paris. The main pro-Kurdish political party in Turkey, the Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP, identified the three victims as Sakine Cansiz, Leyla Sonmez and Fidan Dogan. Cansiz was believed to be a co-founder of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which is viewed as a terror organization by the United States and the European Union.
