‘Malatya massacre’: 5 assailants found guilty

ISTANBUL, Turkey (BP) -- Authorities arrested five Muslim-Turkish nationalists Thursday (Sept. 29) who had been convicted for the torture and murder of three Christians in 2007. Despite the verdict in Malatya, a city of more than 750,000 people in southeast Turkey, the men were not detained and were subject only to routine surveillance, pending appeals proceedings in the slayings of Ugur Yüksel, 32, and Necati Aydin, 36, both Turkish converts from Islam, and Tilmann Geske, 45, a German national.
