Anadolu Agency head offers sympathy on reporter’s death

ANKARA

Anadolu General Director Senol Kazanci expressed condolences after an agency correspondent was found dead on Thursday two weeks after he went missing.

“I wish God's mercy for our correspondent [Abdulkadir Nisanci] who died after an unfortunate event during the news follow-up and our soldiers who were martyred during search and rescue operations,” Kazanci said in a statement.

He also wished patience to the family of Nisanci over the loss of their beloved.

The reporter was on a mission at Mt. Soganli, located between northeastern Bayburt and Trabzon provinces, when he fell off a cliff on May 10.

Nisanci slipped when a mass of snow he stepped on broke loose.

Search and rescue teams had been on the lookout for him since the incident happened.

Two Turkish soldiers were martyred during search and rescue efforts on May 17.

His body was at last found in a stream a kilometer away from the cliff he fell off.
