Kurdish activist women 'executed' in Paris

The bodies of three Kurdish women, said to include a founding member of the Kurdistan Worker's Party, have been found in central Paris.

Police believe it to be an execution-style killing.

The victims are thought be Turkish-born Kurdish activists executed at point blank range in a Kurdish centre in Paris and a murder investigation has been launched.
