French security forces detain three top members of terrorist organization PKK
The French Interior Ministry said on Sunday that security forces detained three top members of the terrorist organization PKK in their operation in Paris on Saturday, Anadolu Agency reported.
Ministry spokesperson Pierre-Henry Brandet told reporters that five people were taken into custody in the operation.
"Three of them are top members of PKK in France," Brandet said.
Brandet did not inform the media on the identities of the detainees, but said operations were staged in two suburbs last night.
The spokesperson said an investigation was under way due to complaints that "the PKK was staging terrorist acts and collected unjust money."
In the meantime, pro-terrorist organization sources confirmed that one of the detainees was Nedim Seven, known as the "chief financial officer of the terrorist organization."
Turkey has previously demanded Nedim Seven's extradition, however France rejected it.
France banned acts of the terrorist organization PKK in 1993.
