Turkey nabs PKK terrorist trying to escape to Greece

5 civilians killed, 2 wounded in Baghdad rocket attack, Iraqi officials say

Turkish security forces intercepted three people, including a PKK terrorist, illegally crossing to Greece, a security source said Thursday.

Security forces in Edirne, a northwestern Turkish province bordering Greece, acting on a tip-off, stopped a car in the town of Subaşı in the Meriç district and nabbed the three.

The PKK member, identified by the initials R.F.C., was on trial for being a part of the terror group and barred from leaving Turkey. The other two were identified as U.C. and S.K.

In its more than 40-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
