Turkish media say a man is in custody after a young female talent show singer was shot in the head in southeast Turkey — the latest high-profile attack upon a woman in Turkey. Mutlu Kaya, a 19-year-old Kurd, gained national notice in Turkey in a popular song contest and had been mentored by Sibel Can, a well-known Turkish folk singer. The state-run Anadolu Agency says an assailant shot Kaya through a window of her house early Monday. Kaya, who had reportedly received death threats after performing in the contest, has been hospitalized in critical condition.
