Four killed in Turkey election campaign clash

Four killed in Turkey election campaign clash

Just days ahead of the June 24 vote, four people have been killed in southern Turkey after a ruling party campaign turned violent.

According to reports, the clashes erupted when a lawmaker from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling party was campaigning in the town of Suruc.

While the state-run Anadolu news agency blames Kurdish militant shopkeeper for the bloodshed, the opposition say the politician’s bodyguards opened fire after receiving a hostile reception.

Eight people have been wounded and 10 others arrested following the clash.
