Ece Temelkuran
Award winning Turkish journalist Ece Temelkuran describes her grief at hearing about the violent murder of her close friend Hrant Dink. Before his death the newspaper editor had been vilified by ultranationalists for talking about the killing of hundreds of thousands of Armenians during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Ece tells Jo Fidgen how much she missed her friend's lovable personality and why she vowed to carry on his work despite the risks.

Ece's book is called Deep Mountain and is published by Verso Books
