ISTANBUL

Turkish police arrested two people in Istanbul over their suspected links to the far-left DHKP-C terror group, a security source said on Monday.

The suspects, accused of plotting attacks and being senior DHKP-C members, were arrested in a raid in Istanbul’s Atasehir District, said the source on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Police seized two guns, bullets, digital materials, and documents related to the group.

The DHKP-C is responsible for a number of terror attacks in Turkey, including a 2013 attack on the US Embassy in Ankara, which martyred a Turkish security guard.

The group is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU.
