ISTANBUL, TURKEY - MAY 19: (TURKEY OUT) Tens of thousands of mourners attend the funeral ceremony of Turkish doctor Turkan Saylan, founder of the Association to Support Contemporary Life, on May 19, 2009 in Istanbul, Turkey. Saylan, who died in hospital in Istanbul early Monday after a long battle with cancer founded the group in 1989, which has provided grants to thousands of poor students, especially girls and built schools in some of Turkey's poorest regions. Last month, police investigating an alleged plot to topple the government, searched the group's premises and detained several members for questioning. (Photo by Burak Kara/Getty Images)
