A U.S. citizen who lived in Turkey is among the nine people killed when Israeli commandos stormed a Turkish aid ship heading for the Gaza Strip, officials said today. The victim was identified as Furkan Dogan, 19, a Turkish-American. A forensic report said he was shot at close range, with four bullets in his head and one in his chest, according to the Anatolian news agency.

DH and my father say, to accidently hit the head is almost impossible ... it can be done though.. but, four times.. DH says that those soldiers had a chance to aim and then took fire... and yes, overkill...

Speaking of which the autopsy of the police dog came back this week. I have an e-mail from Dswood Walid the director of the Michigan chapter of C.A.I.R. but have not time to look at it. I will forward it over to you later.
