Turkish mother ‘shoots dead pregnant daughter’
ISTANBUL (TT: Occupied Constantinople)
A Turkish mother, 36, has shot dead her daughter, 17, after finding out that she was three months pregnant.
The mother, named as Emine A., found out that her daughter Meryem A. was pregnant during a visit to neighbours, security sources told Doğan News Agency. She then went back home to find a gun and returned to shoot her daughter — who worked as a cashier in a market — five times, they added.
Bystanders outside the apartment block in the Selçuk district of the southern city of Niğde rushed to help and took Meryem to hospital but she died on the way.
