Turkey: 5 attempting to flee to Greece held
2 FETO terror suspects among those arrested in northwestern Edirne province

By Salih Baran

EDIRNE, Turkey (AA) - Five people, including two Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) members, were nabbed in northwestern Turkey while they were trying to escape to Greece illegally, security sources said Wednesday.

The suspects were nabbed in the Mandakoru area of the Pasakoy village of Edirne, a northwestern Turkish province bordering Greece, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, in which 251 people were martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Turkey accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
