Turkish families seek to adopt massacre children

May 11, 2009

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - A Turkish official says several families have applied to adopt dozens of children who lost their families in an attack on an engagement ceremony that killed 44 people.

Social services official Fevzi Hamidi said Saturday the families are seeking to adopt 48 children who survived the attack in Mardin province.

Investigators believe the assault Monday night in the southeast village of Bilge was the brutal outcome of a family feud, but attention has focused on a security system that armed tens of thousands of pro-government village guards, many of them Kurds. Authorities say the suspects, including some village guards, used weapons supplied by the state.
