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.
