International human rights groups are putting pressure on Turkish authorities to end shocking transphobic killings in the country.

The call comes after the murders of two transgender women in the last two weeks.

Turkish LGBT group Pembe Hayat, Human Rights Watch, the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission and the European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA-Europe) have written an open letter to the Turkish Government, calling for stronger protection for trans citizens.
