Video depicts Kurdish militant killing policeman
Security cameras have captured the militant approaching Akyüz before shooting him in the back of the head. DHA PhotoA suspected member of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party who shot policeman Tuncay Akyüz while he was standing duty at a hospital was killed yesterday during clashes, daily Hürriyet reported.
A militant was about to hurl a grenade toward security forces when the bomb went off, killing both him and another militant nearby.
Sources claimed the identity of one of the killed militants was the suspected killer of Akyüz.
Akyüz was on guard duty on Sept. 22 in the emergency room of the Regional Study and Research Hospital in the eastern province of Van when a suspected PKK militant approached Akyüz from behind and fired a single shot at his head at around 10 p.m. The militant had fled the scene, taking Akyüz' pistol with him. Doctors were unable to save Akyüz.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.
