Ahmed Dogan, a Turkish-Bulgarian politician and leader of Bulgaria’s Movement for Rights and Freedoms Party, escaped an attempted murder by a man who pointed a gun at his head during a speech in a conference in Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria.
Ahmed was on the stage giving a speech at the National Palace of Culture (NDK) when the 25 year-old suspect, identified as Oktai Enimehmedov pointed a gun at his head in front of the camera on January 19, 2013.
The 25 year old attempted murderer’s weapon misfired and Mr Dogan, 58, escaped unharmed. Security guards and delegates then wrestle Oktai (attempted murderer) to the ground and began beating and kicking him before he was led away by the police.
How the man gained entrance into the conference and with a weapon is still unknown.
