( Cihan ) - Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) terrorists attempted to plant a mine trap on Tunceli-Elazig highway in eastern Turkey but gave up as they realized that the passers by could spot them.
The terrorists were about to conduct the attack on the third kilometer of the highway when they realized that the traffic on the road was too dense and escaped the scene.
The bomb specialists arrived at the locations shortly after the terrorists escaped only to discover bomb wires the terrorists had left behind.
There were also two suspicious packages on the location and the highway was opened to use only after the packages were detonated.
The security forces bombed the mountain area terrorists were reported to have escaped to.
