Outrage has spread across social media in Turkey over the killing of a 20-year-old Kurdish man in an alleged hate crime in Ankara. Pro-Kurdish activists and politicians say Baris Cakan was stabbed to death for listening to Kurdish music, a claim rejected by the Turkish government. VOA Kurdish Service's Eyyup Demir filed this story from Ankara.
