Five PKK suspects detained by security forces
Turkish authorities have detained five suspects for alleged ties with the PKK terror group in an anti-terror operation.
The police forces carried out raids in Istanbul following a tip-off that the suspects had been fabricating fake passports.
A suspect identified by his initials T.A. who was sought for a seven-year prison term, and another identified as K.I. were detained in the raids, according to a report by Demirören News Agency.
Police confiscated passports, unlicensed weapons and digital materials during the raids.
The suspects were transferred to a local court as part of procedures, the report added.
