Three women were 'executed' in Paris. The Kurdish women were activists in the conflict between insurgents from the minority group and Turkey. On Jan. 10, ABC News reported that the long-running conflict may have been playing out on French shores. However, it was not clear if the women were park of the PKK -- a group that is considered a terrorist group by many.
"The slayings came as Turkey was holding peace talks with the Kurdistan Workers Party, which seeks self-rule for Kurds in the country's southeast, to try to persuade it to disarm. The conflict between the group, known as the PKK, and the Turkish government has claimed tens of thousands of lives since 1984," ABC News reports.
The three women who were 'executed' in France have been identified as "Cansiz, Soylemez and Dogan" by Kurdish groups. At this point, it is unclear who actually committed the gruesome crimes. There have been conflicting reports since the women's bodies were found and police found themselves trying to contain hundreds of Kurds who flocked to the scene. Many people were screaming different accusations and it has become a war of words at this point.
"The slayings are being investigated by France's anti-terrorism police," according to ABC News. As more details emerge about the killings, they will be released by the media.
The three women 'executed' in Paris is being investigated. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls called the act "totally intolerable."
