A planned book reading tour in Germany has been cancelled by Orhan Pamuk, the Turkish Nobel Prize winning novelist, due to worries over his personal security.

According to Reuters, the author's safety became a concern after the murder in January of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in Istanbul. A suspect in that murder case reportedly warned Pamuk to be careful whilst he was being escorted by police into a court house.

The writer had been scheduled to tour a number of cities in Germany including Stuttgart, Munich, Hamburg and Cologne.
