Furkan Dogan, 19-year-old student born in Troy, N.Y.. was shot in the forehead by Israeli soldiers on the Freedom Flotilla bound with aid to Palestine.
Dogan's father told Turkey's state-run Anatolia News Agency that he had identified his son's body and that he had been shot through the forehead. Still, he said, the family was not sad because they believed Furkan had died with honor.
"I feel my son has been blessed with heaven," he said. "I am hoping to be a father worthy of my son."
