    France and Turkey have condemned the killing of three female Kurdish activists in Paris.

    Kurds turned out in anger after the women's bodies were found shot in the head in a Kurdish centre.

    One of the victims, Sakine Cansiz, is a founder member of the Kurdistan Workers Party or PKK, an armed separatist group which has waged a 28-year insurgency against the Turkish state.
