A far-left terror suspect was arrested in northwestern Turkey while illegally attempting to cross into Greece, security sources said on Thursday.
Border guards arrested Haydar Y., allegedly involved in the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) terror group, when they spotted him in a restricted military zone in the Edirne province.
He was attempting to cross into Greece illegally, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
The DHKP-C is responsible for a number of terror attacks in Turkey, including a 2013 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Ankara that left a Turkish security guard dead and a journalist injured.
The far-left group is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the European Union.
