Thousands of Kurds carry banners bearing pictures of the three top Kurdish activists Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Soylemez, shot dead in the French capital, on January 17 in Diyarbakir. Several thousand Kurds gathered on January 17 in a square in Diyarbakir, the main city of Turkey's Kurd-majority southeast, to pay a final tribute to three Kurdish women activists who were assassinated in Paris last week. The growing crowd of participants, men and women adorned in white scarves, a symbol of peace, marched in a funeral many in Turkey feared would turn into a violent protest. The three women, one of them Sakine Cansiz, a co-founder of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), were found fatally shot, at least three times in their heads, at a Kurdish centre in Paris last week. French police were hunting the unknown assailants. AFP PHOTO/MEHMET ENGIN (Photo credit should read MEHMET ENGIN/AFP/Getty Images)
