The women were found in the early hours of January 10 with gunshot wounds to the head inside a Kurdish information centre in the 10th district of the French capital, police and the centre's director said. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls visited the scene of the crime and described the killings as 'assassinations'. The murders came after Turkish media reported on January 9 that the Turkish government and jailed Kurd rebel leader Abdullah Ocalan had agreed on a roadmap to end a three-decade-old insurgency that has claimed tens of thousands of lives.
