17 July 2012

The death of 64-year-old Aziz Kara, a man of Turkish descent in the Netherlands, has sparked calls for police investigation. Kara died after allegedly being struck by his neighbor Henk W. and hitting his head on the ground. Other neighbors report that Henk and his wife had “never made a secret of the fact they dislike Turks but have also antagonized their native Dutch neighbors”, Dutch News reports. Turkish organizations in the country are calling for an investigation into the conflict focusing on its “social and community aspects.”
