In Şarköy district of Tekirdağ province, a group of 7-to-10 year-old
children filled a plastic container with acetone and 'çatapat' (caps),
following directions they found on the internet, in order to scare
their friends.  The children then threw a match into the container
creating a ball of fire.

One child, Arda G., was seriously burned on his face and body. He
was taken, in succession, to Şarköy State Hospital, Çorlu State Hospital
and finally to a hospital with a burn unit in Istanbul.  Arda's father had
this to say about the incident: "the kids watched a video on the internet
at our summer house about how to make a bomb and they went ahead
and tried to do it.  Arda has a burn on his cornea and he's under treatment.
I'm going to start a legal campaign to have such videos banned from the
internet. Parents have to check on what their kids are watching on the

       This part wasn't included on the internet.

A minibus driven by R.A. (13!) ran over 3 year-old Elif Dursun and
Efe Yağız Tepe (9) in Sancaktepe, Istanbul, on 8 June.  Both of the
children died.  In his statement to police suspect R.A. explained that
"my big brother was sitting next to me while I was driving. After about
50 meters we slid and I felt like I'd hit something.  When we looked
up we saw that we had crashed into a building.  I never thought such
a thing could happen. I watched my father drive and I saw on the
internet (!) how to drive a car. "

The public prosecutor charged R.A. with killing two people by
negligence and asked for a jail sentence of between 1 year four months
and 11 years 3 months. Because of his age, R.A. cannot be sentenced
to more than 7 years in jail.
