The victims were Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan, and Leyla Saylemez, all prominent members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). The assassin, Ömer Güney, was a Turkish national with links to the Turkish intelligence service, MIT. The murders sparked outrage and protests across Europe and were widely seen as an attempt by the Turkish government to silence its political opponents. The investigation into the assassinations revealed a complex web of intrigue and international connections, leading to allegations of Turkish government involvement and complicity. The incident strained diplomatic relations between Turkey and France and raised serious questions about the Turkish government's commitment to human rights and freedom of expression.
