Kurdish protests after Paris killings

The bodies of three Kurdish women who appeared to have died from gunshot wounds have been found in the Kurdish Institute in central Paris.

The victims were Turkish-born Kurdish activists, including a co-founder of the militant separatist PKK.

Police believe the killings were politically motivated and a murder investigation has been launched.

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls visited the scene of the shootings. Members of the Kurdish community demonstrated outside the information centre as he arrived.
