(Hürriyet Newspaper, 17 February 2011)
In the Kurtuluş neighborhood of Konya's Meram district two groups
of friends went to an internet cafe and started to play the war game
Counter Strike, with the winner getting a tray of baklava. After about
two hours of play the victorious group got its baklava.
The two groups then went to a park at around 2230 and started to
eat the baklava. At this point, 19 year-old Hüseyin Kara said to the
losing side 'you don't know how to play the game. Idiots baklava
tastes good.' Hearing this, about ten members of the defeated group
cried 'around here we play Counter best!' and attacked Kara, sparking
a battle between the two groups.
Hüseyin Kara was seriously injured in the fight, while another three
of his friends were slightly wounded. Kara was taken to the Konya
Model Hospital for treatement of wounds he sustained to the head and
arms. Police are looking for the suspects who beat the four young men
and then escaped.
