KONYA, Turkey 

Turkish police on Tuesday arrested three PKK terror suspects during a counterterrorism operation in the central Konya province.

The suspects were accused of spreading terrorist propaganda on social media platforms, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
