A wanted PKK/KCK terrorist was captured in southeastern Turkey, the Interior Ministry said on Friday.

The terrorist was in the grey category of the wanted list, the statement said without mentioning a name.

The wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and grey.
