New photos emerge of funeral attacker with Erdogan’s son
New photos have emerged of M.A. who attacked the funeral of the mother of a prominent Kurdish politician, with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son.
Multiple photos emerged of M.A with Bilal Erdogan, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son and with Turkish Labor and Social Security Minister Julide Sarieroglu.
M.A. was among the group that attacked Hatun Tugluk’s funeral in Ankara on September 13. Hatun Tugluk is the mother of Aysel Tugluk, a prominent Kurdish politician.
After the attack the body of Hatun Tugluk was taken out from her grave in Ankara and she was buried in Dersim the next day.
The AKP officials denied any involvement with the incident and condemned the attack.
But on Saturday an attackers photo with the Interior Minister of Turkey, Suleyman Soylu was released.
More images followed showing M.A with Bilal Erdogan, son of Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Julide Sarieroglu, another minister from AKP cabinet.
The new images raised concerns that the attackers are protected by Turkish government officials.
It’s still unclear if M.A is under custody. Turkish police’s statement says 23 were taken into custody and 19 are released. Turkish authorities issued arrest warrants for 6 other people.
