Pendik'te sis bombası kalaşnikof: 2 ölü
  When a parking spot is so good it's 'to die for'.

A few days ago in Kaynarca neighborhood of Pendik district,
Istanbul, some employees of a construction firm parked their
cars in front of the Kabadayi Business Center on Cemal Gursel
Boulevard.  Employees of a car rental company in the business
center warned the drivers of the cars that they were blocking
the entrance to their establishment.

The resulting argument turned into a fight and yesterday the
two groups began to clash again over the same problem. This
time, however, there were pump-action and Kalishnikov rifles
involved. Taylan Olgun and Oguzhan Yilmaz of the construction
firm were shot and died at the hospital. Berat Halil was taken
to Marmara Training and Research Hospital for treatment and
Gokay Kilic and Salih Mustafa Kirkan were transported to
Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Kartal Training and Research Hospital.

Police are on duty at the scene to try and head off another clash
between the two groups.

 "Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet..."

In Bayramic district of Canakkale province, lathe operator
Muammer Gogusgeren (62) planted an everblooming lemon
tree in his garden three years ago. On the night of 8 January
someone stole the tree.

When Gogusgeren left for work the following morning he
noticed that the tree was gone so he went to the police station
to file a complaint. Gogusgeren is looking everywhere for
the rare tree, which does not grow in the region. He has put
ads in local papers about the stolen tree and says that he will
go from house to house and garden to garden in Bayramic
to find the tree.

Bayramic district, Canakkale province.
