10 kidnapped by PKK in Turkey: report
Ankara, May 29 (Xinhua-ANI): A total of 10 people were kidnapped by the outlawed Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) in Turkey's eastern province of Igdir, local newspaper Today's Zaman reported on its website on Tuesday.
A group of PKK members attacked an automobile belonging to the Igdir Special Provincial Administration near the region of Agri Mountains late on Monday and kidnapped an engineer, a civil servant and eight others, said the report.
Turkish security units are making efforts to rescue the kidnapped people.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, took up arms in 1984 in an attempt to create an ethnic homeland in southeastern Turkey. Since then, more than 40,000 people have been killed in conflicts involving the group. (Xinhua-ANI)
