Six MKP/ML-TİKKO guerrillas lost their lives in a clash with the Turkish army forces in the countryside of Şahverdi village in Mount Mercan in Dersim on August 5-6. Bodies of the guerrillas were then taken to the Forensic Medicine Institute in Malatya province.

According to a report by Yeni Demokrasi (New Democracy) newspaper, families went to the Forensic Medicine Institute to identify and reclaim the bodies.

Families, however, couldn’t identify any of the dead bodies as they were all burned and unrecognizable.
