Turkish authorities have detained 72 people, including lawyers and doctors, in sweeping anti-terrorism raids on Friday, the state news agency, Anadolu, has reported.
The 72 are among the 101 suspects whom prosecutors seek to detain.
They are also accused of membership of so-called legislative branch of the PKK which has waged a decade-long insurgency in Turkey.
In pre-dawn raids, police searched the suspects’ apartments in Istanbul, Izmir and the south-eastern cities of Diyarbakir and Adiyaman, the report said.
Police confiscated unlicensed pistols, digital documents and banned books at the apartments and are searching for the 25 remaining suspects, accordingly to the report.
