British woman dead in Ankara airport not a suicide - friends

Call for international investigation

(ANSA) - Rome, October 19 - Friends and colleagues of Jacqueline Anne Sutton, the British former BBC reporter found dead in a bathroom at Ankara airport Saturday night, did not commit suicide, her friends and colleagues said Monday, calling for an international investigation.
    Sutton, 50, was found hanged by her shoelaces and Turkish sources said she committed suicide after missing a flight to Iraq.
    Sutton was the head of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) in Iraq and was leading investigations into women's conditions in Islamic State (ISIS).
    Her predecessor at the IWPR, Ammar Al Shahbander, was killed by a car bomb in Baghdad in May.
