EDIRNE, Turkey

Six suspected members of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) were arrested in northwestern Turkey as they attempted to cross to Greece, security sources said Tuesday.

The suspects were held by Turkish border guards and provincial gendarmerie forces near the village of Uyuklutatar in Edirne province bordering Greece and Bulgaria in a prohibited military zone, said a source who asked not to be named due to restrictions on talking with the media.

The suspects were later found to be members of the FETO terror group and were trying to cross to Greece via Turkey.
