Two Kurds beaten up by Turkish mob during Newroz celebration – Footage


Two Kurds were violently attacked by a group of Turkish nationalists earlier today. Since this morning, hundreds have been arrested, dozens injured and one killed for trying to celebrate Newroz. We are unable to identify the whereabouts of these two victims, but are currently trying to locate them.

As evident from the video, many were pre-occupied with getting footage of the horrific incident instead of trying to help the two Kurds violently beaten. Violence escalated because Turkish riot police tried to prevent Kurds from reaching the Square where Newroz celebrations were being held. The excessive usage of violence by Turkish riot police was unnecessary.

More updates coming soon.
