Archaeologists working at the Antioch of Pisidia ruins have staged a sit in to protest the beheading of Khaled Al-Assad, the 82 year old archaeologist beheaded recently by IS for refusing to reveal the location of hidden artefacts from the site of Palmyra. 

The group  from the Süleyman Demirel University Archaeology Department have condemned the actions of IS not only for the killing of their colleague but the public display of his body and the destruction of artefacts.
