Al-Qamishli: Activist murdered

KUDWATCH, September 15, 2013—On September 1, 2013, the activist Ahmad Farman Bunjuq (b.  April 14, 1994), member of the Union of Students from al‑Qamishli, was shot from a moving car. Before this he had been tailed for several days. Shortly after the shooting he succumbed to his head and chest injuries. While returning from a military camp in Iraqi-Kurdistan on February 19, 2013, Bunjuq had been kidnapped by the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and held for about three months. An activist told KurdWatch that the PYD is assumed responsible for the murder of Bundschuq. The victim’s father did not want to comment on the case. On their end, the PYD publicly condemned Bunjuq’s murder.
