PKK shooting: Kurds mass for women's funerals

Tens of thousands of Kurds have attended the funerals in Diyarbakir, Turkey, of three female Kurdish activists shot dead in Paris last week.

Crowds chanted as the coffins of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) members Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Saylemez were carried through the city streets to a parade ground where the funerals were held.

The BBC's James Reynolds reports from Diyarbakir.
