Nineteen-year-old Doğan, an American citizen who settled in Kayseri a couple of years ago after returning from the US with his family, was among nine volunteers who were killed at the hands of Israeli commandos on an aid flotilla in international waters in May. The convoy arrived in Kayseri on Thursday and proceeded to Doğan’s grave early in the morning.
