Germany detains senior DHKP-C militant

Written by Editor

German authorities detained a high-ranking militant of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) on Friday in the German city of Hamburg in an operation conducted weeks after the country’s interior minister said they were “open and ready” to cooperate with Turkey in the fight against terror.

One of the group’s top leaders, Musa Asoğlu was detained by German security forces in an anti-terror raid in his apartment and he is reportedly still under detention.

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office released a statement on Saturday, saying that Aşoğlu, a publicly known terror figure, was responsible for numerous killings and terror attacks in Turkey.
