Description

A photo of slain Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink is seen in the reflection of the hearse carrying his flower-covered coffin during a funeral procession in Istanbul‭, ‬Turkey on January 23‭, ‬2007‭. ‬Dink was shot in broad daylight outside of his newspaper's office in‭ ‬Istanbul‭.‬ Dink‭, ‬a defender of his Armenian past‭, ‬was charged with breaking Law 301 of the Penal Code which makes it illegal to‭ ‬“insult”‭ ‬the Republic or being a Turk‭.‬‭ ‬His killer‭ ‬admitted that‭ ‬he‭ ‬did‭ ‬it because Hrant had‭ '‬insulted Turks‭.' ‬ For more about the artist see: http://krcphoto.com/#.
