South Korean Jin-Wook Kim, 41, was murdered in a late-night attack on the streets of Diyarbakir (southeast Turkey’s largest city), while walking alone in a small alley near his home in the city’s impoverished Baglar district. Bleeding heavily from two deep stab wounds to his heart and a third in his back, Kim stumbled onto a nearby street, where passers-by alerted the police and called an ambulance.
