Sputnik News reports that in Turkish Kurdistan, the local residents have been on strike for 40 days now and are asking the police to allow them to take the bodies of their dead children. There are seven Kurdish teenagers whose names are known, who died in a city called Sur. Their relatives still have not taken their bodies. For safety reasons the police are not permitting the parents to go into the district. Parents, of course, say that the teenagers were killed in battle by accident, while the authorities insist that all the dead were killed by militants and terrorists.
