Thousands of Kurds from all over Europe are gathered in Paris today for what is expected to be an angry protest over the killing of three female activists shot dead at least three times in the head, giving further credence to the theory of an execution-style hit. Kurdish activists have accused Turkey or rogue nationalist elements in the country's military of being behind the killings.
