Zeynep's ready again for some finger-licken' good KFC!

Osman and Özge Çağlar live in Saryar village in Yıldızeli district
of Sivas province. The couple's daughter Zeynep began playing on
a tractor in front of the house with her 2-year-old sibling on Tuesday
evening, when the sibling accidently pushed the starter while
Zeynep's hands were inside the motor compartment.

Zeynep's screams alerted her parents, who rushed her to Sivas
Cumhuriyet University Hospital, where doctor's tried to mend
Zeynep's right index finger, which had been cut off by the tractor's
motor fan.  Her thumb and middle finger were seriously injured,
as well.

          Yıldızeli district is in Sivas's northwest.

From Sivas the family went to Kayseri but since there were no
micro-surgery capabilities in Kayseri the family was transported
first to Antalya by a Health Ministry air-ambulance and from
Antalya to a private hospital in Kumluca by helicopter.  On
Wednesday morning, a team was waiting for Zeynep at the
Kumluca hospital, where Zeynep's index finger was successfully
re-attached in a 6-hour operation. Her other injured fingers were
treated, as well.

Zeynep's grateful father Osman stated that "May God bless our
government for giving my child an airplane and a helicopter!"

Hold it. I think you're gonna like this picture.

Yalova Mayor Vefa Salam spoke at the opening of a public toilet that
was the gift of the World Toilet Association (WTA).  Referring to
criticism that there was a political aspect to the toilet, Mayor Salamasserted that "It is not a fair accusation.  If  they went to Suwon, our
sister city in South Korea, and saw the toilet museum there I think
they wouldn't comment in this manner.  Last year the Suwon Mayor
visited us and offered to install a toilet."

"We thought it wouldn't be right to decline this offer and since
we are a Moslem nation, having a saying that 'cleanliness
breeds profits', we felt it would be right to use such a toilet.
WTA 's General Secretary Young Checl Kim proclaimed that
'today, by means of cooperation between Suwon, Yalova and
the WTA, we have the honor to open this public toilet.  We have
done this in 16 countries and hope that this toilet will benefit
tourists who visit Yalova.'"

4 bin euro maaşla iş hayali suya düştü
They forgot the old adage "if it sounds too good to be true..."

In Antalya, quite a few truck drivers went to the police, saying they
were promised a 4,000 Euro monthly salary for work abroad but were
left with nothing in the end.  The 55 truck drivers from various
provinces gathered in front of a shopping center in Kepez district to
wait for those who had promised to place them in jobs in Norway (!).

When the promisers failed to arrive the truckers realized they had
been bilked.  One of them, Savaş Seçim of Konya's Seydişehir
district, said he had come to Antalya in order to go to Norway for
work.  He added that "they got in touch with us through people we
know and made the offer, which we accepted.  But we had to give
them a 2,000 TL pre-payment.  There was a brief meeting in Alanya,
where we paid for health reports."

Seçim said they have tried to find those who promised the jobs but
in vain.  He added that "they promised us a 4,100 Euro monthly
salary in Norway and said we'd get 42 Euro per work hour extra,
working 8-hour days with weekends off." (!)

To most any woman, he's irresistible. Maybe not Germans, though.

German Karin Ellen Hitzel lived in a triplex apartment on Titreyengöl
Avenue in the Sorgun neighborhood of Manavgat, in Antalya
province.  At 8 P.M. on 8 July a friend found Hitzel lying motionless
under a tree in her garden.  Police found bone breaks on Hitzel's face,
nose, chin and neck.

     Couldn't bring herself to lower her standards.

Suspecting Hitzel's neighbor, seasonal construction worker Ş.A., in
connection with the murder, police began to investigate.  They found
that on 4 July Hitzel and Ş.A. drank alcohol in her garden and that
subsequently Ş.A. proposed that they engage in sex.  In response,
Hitzel said "haven't you looked in the mirror!" (!)  Ş.A. took umbrage
at this, hitting Hitzel with a rock and then strangling her. 

After the murder, Ş.A. covered Hitzel's body with grass and
supposedly fled on the bus to Hatay.  In fact, Ş.A. went to Kızıllı
village in Antalya's Kepez district, where police donned shepherds
outfits to catch Ş.A.  The day before yesterday, he and his friend Ö.Ç.
were captured as they tried to flee in a car.  Hitzel had lived in
Manavgat for 7 years and had a son and a daughter living in Germany.

Turk Cyclist Barely Escapes Restless Natives in Africa

hasan söylemez fulaniler dogonlar ile ilgili görsel sonucu
Söylemez with friendlier natives in Mali and, above left, in the
geography of the more accommodating Thracian tribes.

Ex-journalist and self-described traveler Hasan Söylemez related on
Twitter the tense moments he experienced, caught between two
warring tribes in the Republic of Mali, a country with a population
of 14 million in West Africa.

Söylemez, who puts his Africa documentaries on YouTube, described
the situation he and two guides experienced, as follows: "There have
been violent clashes between the Fulanis and the Dogons for three
years because of disagreements over cow pasture lands and water.
The latest one occurred a few weeks ago when the Dogons raided a
Fulani village, killing 32 people, including women, children and the
elderly.  The attackers were so heartless and angry that after the
Gendarmerie left the village they went back and hacked another four
people to death.  The atmosphere is very tense so I told Davut
(evidently one of Söylemez's guides) not to go there and stay in
the hotel, while I would go to the villages with a Dogon guide."

Söylemez related that (evidently sometime before) "When we got
to Sanga village they stopped us.  Everyone was looking angrily at
Davut.  A man of about 50 took our Dogon guide to one side and
said some things, gesturing toward Davut.  The fellow's eyes were
red with rage.  I went to the guide and asked 'what's the problem?'
In response the guide said 'He called the gang members on the phone
so we have to get out of here before they show up.  Otherwise,
they'll cut us all up.'  Amazed, I said to myself 'like killing chickens?'
but then I remembered that they had recently hacked 32 people to
death.  I was frozen with fright looking at the angry faces so right
away we hopped in the car and got away."
