Denmark, Spain arrest two terror suspects upon Turkey's request
Denmark and Spain have arrested two terror suspects upon Turkey's demand through Interpol red notices.
A suspect identified by the initials C.C., whom Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency labelled as the top representative of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Scandinavia, was captured in Denmark on July 14 to be extradited to Turkey.
Security forces began an operation to apprehend him after learning he was planning to travel from Germany to Denmark, a security source told the agency.
Separately, a suspected member of the outlawed far-leftist Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C) was arrested in Spain.
The person, identified by the initials S.G., is reportedly a suspect in the 1997 killing of seven civilians in the village of Ulukale in Turkey’s eastern province of Tunceli.
PKK and DHKP-C are listed as terrorist organizations by Turkey, the U.S., and the European Union.
