In the countryside of Van province, a 28-year-old man fell into a trench of the Turkish army during an attempted border crossing and died. Meanwhile, the military claims that the man was attacked by wolves.
The slain man was identified as Adnan Karahan, father of four, from the Kurucan neighborhood in the Saray district. The region borders on Iran, where Karahan wanted to go. After the fall into the trench, which occurred on Saturday night, the man called his acquaintances for help by phone, his relatives told ANF. Against this background, the military's claim that the 28-year-old was killed by wild animals caused great outrage in Van.
Meanwhile, the body of Adnan Karahan was taken to the state hospital in Özalp district. An autopsy will now clarify the exact cause of death.
