A 16-year-old girl was buried alive by relatives in a gruesome Turkish honour killing - because she befriended boys.
Acting on a tip-off, police discovered Medine Memi's body in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-metre-deep hole in a chicken pen outside her house.
A post mortem revealed that she had a significant amount of soil in her lungs and stomach, meaning that she was buried alive, foresic experts told the Anatolia agency.
The girl was discovered in Kahta town, Adiyaman province, 40 days after she went missing.
"The autopsy result is blood-curdling," one anonymous expert said.
"According to our findings, the girl - who had no bruises on her body and no sign of narcotics or poison in her blood - was alive and fully conscious when she was buried."
Medine's father and grandfather have been arrested and jailed pending trial over her killing, the agency said.
The father is reported to have said in his testimony that the family was unhappy she had male friends.
In honour killings, most prevalent in Turkey's mainly Kurdish South East, a so-called family council names a member to murder a female relative.
A victim is targeted if she is considered to have sullied the family honour, usually by engaging in an extra-marital affair.
The practice has seen rape victims or women who simply talked to strange men murdered.
