Complaint About Ramadan “Breakfast Drummer” Leads To Muslim Riot

“Some 50-60 people first initiated the attack on Saturday night, after family members asked the drummer to beat his drum further away from their house, while another 400-500 people then showed up again on Sunday night and started marching toward their house, according Servet Evli, one of the family members. Security forces then dispersed the mobs by shooting in the air.

Members of the Evli family said they were attacked because they were Kurds and Alevis, while they also sent their youngest child to their relatives’ keep in the neighboring province of Adıyaman as a consequence.
