Turkey Referendum-Two Killed in Shooting for Erdogan Yes-Camp
Turkey Referendum-Two Killed in Shooting for Erdogan Yes-Camp. Two people have been killed in a brawl in a Turkish polling station. One other person was injured.
The brawl in the referendum took place in a school which did temporary duty as voting location near Çermik, a city in eastern Turkey. The argument became so heated that people came to each other with knives and firearms.
Two people survived the quarrel; a third person had to be taken to hospital. There is one suspect arrested.
The security measures in the area had been tightened in connection with the referendum. It is unclear why there was shooting. According to local news agency Dogan would be a political disagreement.
Today, 55 million Turks cast their vote in the referendum. Polls predict a neck-and-neck race between the no-camp and the yes-camp of President Erdogan, where the yes camp is just bigger.
Much depends on the referendum. If the yes camp wins, Erdogan gets more power and may remain longer.
