Kurdish feud behind Paris slayings: Turkey PM
Ankara: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blamed a feud among Kurdish rebels as the prime reason behind the killings of three activists in Paris.
Erdogan said he had "technical information" that suggested the feud was to blame for the slayings.
The three activists, including the founding member of the autonomy-seeking Kurdish rebel group, were shot dead in Paris on Thursday at a time when their jailed leader is holding peace talks with Turkey.
Kurds have accused Turkey for the slayings, while Turkish officials have suggested the killings may be part of an internal feud or an attempt to derail the talks.
The Prime Minister said Friday a Kurdish centre where the women died was protected by a coded lock. He said the women would not open the door to people they did not know or that the killer had the code.
