A picture may be worth a thousand words, but eight shots taken by journalist Abdulrahman Gok scream one: murder. Gok is on trial for taking the photos in Diyarbakir on the morning of March 21, 2017. The prosecutor is demanding 20 years.
The bare-chested 23-year-old in the photos is Kemal Kurkut. He was a college student majoring in music, a violin player who traveled to Diyarbakir that day for Newroz. After almost four years of trial, the officer who fired the shot was acquitted in mid-November.
