The U.N. high commissioner for human rights has called on Turkish authorities to investigate the shooting of civilians. Dorian Jones reports.
"This is sound from video showing the shooting of what appears to be civilians under a white flag seeking to assist those wounded in the predominantly Kurdish town of Cizre. The town is at the center of a crackdown by Turkish security forces against the Kurdish rebel group, the PKK. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein is calling for an immediate investigation. Al Hussein criticized reports the journalist who filmed the shooting is now under investigation for terrorist propaganda. The U.N. commissioner said, ‘Filming an atrocity is not a crime, but shooting unarmed civilians most certainly is.’ Dorian Jones, Istanbul."
