Brother of shot Turkish protester seeks justice one year on

Mustafa Sarisuluk, brother of 26-year-old Ethem Sarisuluk who was shot dead by police during anti-government protests in 2013 in Ankara, speaks to AFP on May 29, 2014 in AnkaraMustafa Sarisuluk didn’t even recognise his brother as he watched his limp body being carried to an ambulance after being shot in the head during protests in Ankara last year. “Thousands were at the downtown Kizilay square in Ankara, under massive plumes of tear gas fired by the police billowing into the air. I saw police deliberately taking aim at protesters. The protests soon snowballed into a campaign against the authoritarianism of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamic-rooted government, drawing an estimated three million people onto the streets.
