Topless protest of domestic violence in Turkey

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) Ukrainian women's rights activists have staged a topless demonstration to protest domestic violence against women in Turkey, just hours after a man shot dead a female relative after she left home following an argument with her husband.

Four members of the Femen group, wearing bruise-like makeup, chanted slogans and displayed banners in the one-minute protest in Istanbul to mark International Women's Day on Thursday.

They were immediately dragged into a police vehicle and driven away.

Police say an allegedly mentally unstable man killed a 40-year-old mother of three in Istanbul earlier Thursday.

The Parliament is working on legislation to introduce stiffer punishment for those mistreating and abusing women in the largely patriarchal society.
