    Do you have a source that confirms this? Or is this your opinion?

    The speculation throughout Europe is that this was staged (the gas pistol is confirmed). The guy got a pretty heavy kicking to the head, so if it was staged I hope he got paid nicely :D

    If you look at it a few times over, it does look a bit dodgy, but who can tell really. What would be the point of it? To look masculine perhaps, which works well with some types of voters (Putin's macho photo campaigns are wildly popular in Russia).

    If you do a Google search you can find numerous articles where it was confirmed he was using a gas pistol with blank shots. Quite a bleak attempt to seriously injure Mr. Dogan.

    That's how it's being played here by the press.
