Commenting article: Bulgarians Want Ethnic Turks to Be Probed for Battery of Dogan's Attacker

Thousands of Bulgarians have united in outrage from live footage showing delegates of the ethnic Turkish party DPS beating a man who attacked their leader Ahmed Dogan with a gas pistol.

The Facebook group demands for them to be legally prosecuted and fairly punished for kicking and hitting "insanely" the assailant and cursing in Turkish.  They have announced the launch of a petition for the above.

On Saturday, police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gun at Dogan  as he was delivering a speech in the capital Sofia. No shots were fired. The man was identified as Oktay Enimehmedov, a 25-year-old ethnic Turkish resident of the city of Burgas, with a previous criminal record for assault and theft.

So swearing in Turkish is an offence?
@Rat: don't worry: within a week the world will not remember whether this happened in Montenegro, Bulgaria or Azerbaijan, and in a month it will be completely forgotten.
