2 wanted PKK terrorists surrender in eastern Turkey

Two wanted PKK terrorists surrendered to Turkish security forces in Turkey's eastern Van province, the Interior Ministry said in a written statement Sunday.

Terrorists were wanted in the gray category of the Interior Ministry's list with a bounty of 300,000 Turkish liras (roughly $53,000) each.

Terrorists' family members helped realize their surrender, the statement said.

The wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and gray.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women, children, and infants.
