Shot in the head four times. What can conceivably explain such a demise? Outrageous. Let Joe Biden tell us again: "what's the big deal?"
Huffington Post provided a few details:
A U.S. citizen was among those killed in Israel's flotilla raid Monday, the AP reports.
A State Department official says one of the nine people killed in the Israeli raid on an aid flotilla Monday was a 19-year-old man with dual U.S.-Turkish citizenship.
The official identified the victim as Furkan Dogan, who was believed to have been residing in Turkey.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter has not been officially confirmed by the U.S. government.
The official said the victim had been shot but it was not clear who shot him. He was among eight of the dead being mourned at a funeral in Istanbul Thursday.
ABC News, quoting the Anatolian news agency, reports that Dogan was shot at "close range, with four bullets in his head and one in his chest."
