Turkish dailies on Wednesday covered the killing of a Turkish police officer in Istanbul, a women who set herself fire, and a forensic investigation into the death of Turkey's eighth president, Turgut Ozal. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
An armed attack in Istanbul killed a Turkish police officer and injured three citizens. Daily MILLIYET said the female attacker, who it said had been trained in a terrorist training camp in Greece, was saved by police officers from getting lynched in 2005 while distributing flyers. The daily said that she fired eight bullets to the police officer, Mucahit Dastan, in the back while wounding 3 civilians in the Gaziosmanpasa district of Istanbul.
Another topic covered by most of the Turkish dailies was a woman victim of domestic violence who set herself fire to protest authorities which she claimed failed to respond to her complaints about her partner. She was admitted to a hospital with burns in her face, hair and shoulder.
Lastly, most of the Turkish dailies covered a forensic investigation into the death of Turkey's eighth President Turgut Ozal. Daily TURKIYE stated that Turkish Forensic Medicine Institute has completed a report on the demise of Ozal after an inquiry on suspicions that he might have been killed by poisoning. The report, which will be sent to an Ankara prosecutor's office, says, "Traces of toxic materials had been found in Ozal's body but it is not clear whether poisoning is the cause of his death."
