(Hürriyet Newspaper, 30 March 2011)
A man riding on the IETT bus that runs between Zeytinburnu and Marmara
Sanayi Sitesi got into an argument with Yilmaz Akbaba (32) and Vedat
Akbaba (28) who were allegedly using foul language in loud voices. As the
bus was passing by the intersection at Atatürk Airport the unidentified man,
who was with a woman, took out a gun and fired at the two Akbaba
brothers. The bus passengers were thrown into a great panic and the
brothers were seriously wounded by the bullets that hit their bodies.
One of the gun's bullets also hit Faruk Çoban (53), who was in the process
of handing his carfare to the bus driver, in his left hand. The gunman who
had shot the three people and his female companion got off the bus and
escaped when the driver stopped the bus. The Akbaba brothers were taken
to the hospital, where they remain in serious condition. The police have
begun a inquiry in order to capture the attacker.
