The burial of Deniz Cevdet Bülbün, who was killed in an armed attack on the office of the Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) on 18 September, has been halted as an autopsy is required.
The family of Javad Heidari, who participated in the ‘Jin Jîyan Azadi’ resistance in Iran and was killed on 21 September 2022, was attacked by regime forces while attempting to hold a commemoration ceremony.
