Wanted PKK militants among killed in Turkey

Two PKK militants killed in an anti-terror operation on May 9 were among those named on the wanted terrorists list, Interior Ministry said on May 10.  

Celal Kaya and Haydar Gül were inscribed on the blue and orange category of the wanted terrorists list of the Interior Ministry, respectively.         

On May 9, Turkish security forces neutralized six PKK militants in eastern Tunceli province.     

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.     

On the second-highest category, Kaya was wanted with a bounty of 1.5 million Turkish liras (roughly $250,000), while 600,000 Turkish liras (nearly $98,000) bounty was on the head of Gül.         

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

PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.
