From The Times:
"Orhan Kaya and Can Onel were the first to kill themselves. The two friends, aged 24 and 19, hanged themselves at the same spot in the same church graveyard in Hackney, within weeks of each other in the summer. Since then, seven more have followed suit. The latest is Murat Yaldir, 23, found hanged last week by the owner of the takeaway he worked for. Almost all the suicides have taken place in the heart of Britain’s Turkish community in North and East London. The grim statistics show that Turkish and Kurdish men are now the ethnic groups most vulnerable to suicide in this country. Taking into account the recent cluster of suicides, they are about seven times more likely to commit suicide than South Asians, the next most susceptible group. The present suicide rate among Turkish men is double the national average."
