LGBT Turks protested in Istanbul yesterday over the murder of 23-year-old transwoman Hande Kader, whose body was found last week. Ms Kader, a sex worker, was last seen getting into a client’s car. Her body was later found in the woods, showing signs of having been raped and then burned to death. She was well known in the Turkish LGBT community and had famously squared up to a water cannon at last year’s Istanbul Gay Pride parade.
