ADANA, Turkey

Turkish police arrested 14 suspects in raids in the southern Adana province for their alleged links to the terrorist group PKK, a judicial source said on Friday.

Anti-terror police launched an investigation into the alleged members of the terrorist group, said a source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

With 17 arrest warrants in total, police continue operations to capture the remaining three suspects.

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