25 suspects linked to far-left terror group DHKP-C nabbed in Turkey
Suspects rounded up in Istanbul, Sivas, Samsun, Izmir, Ankara, Yozgat and Denizli provinces
Turkish police held at least 25 suspects for their alleged links to the far-left DHKP-C terror group across the country, security sources said on Friday.
Based on information from suspects arrested earlier, police identified 43 suspects and nabbed 25 of them in seven Turkish provinces: Istanbul, Sivas, Samsun, Izmir, Ankara, Yozgat and Denizli. Efforts to round up the remaining ones are ongoing.
The DHKP-C is responsible for several terror attacks in Turkey, including a 2013 attack on the US Embassy in Ankara, which killed a Turkish security guard.
The group is enlisted as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form. Please contact us for subscription options.
