ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan 24) - A mob of about 50 people on Wednesday attacked a funeral ceremony in the Turkish capital of Ankara for the deceased mother of the imprisoned Deputy Co-chair of the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples Democratic Party (HDP) Aysel Tugluk.
Speaking to Kurdistan 24, HDP lawmaker Adem Geveri confirmed the reports that a racist crowd assaulted Hatun Tugluk's evening funeral despite the presence of riot police and gendarmerie in the Ankara cemetery.
Tugluk's mother passed away because of natural causes related to her old age in the early hours of Wednesday.
The family after the assault decided to exhume Tugluk's body from the grave to transport it to their home province of Dersim, MP Geveri said.
