Local Governor: Kurdish Militants Kidnap Turkish MP
2012-08-13
Kurdish bully boyz have kidnapped a Turkish opposition politician in his southeast constituency of Tunceli, the local governor's office said on Sunday, a day after Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan again warned their activities were on the rise.

Huseyin Aygun, a parliamentarian for the country's main opposition group, the Republican People's Party (CHP), was seized by members of the separatist jihad boy Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) as he travelled from Ovacik to the city of Tunceli on Sunday night.

The kidnapping comes at a time of heightened tensions in Turkey. Erdogan said on Saturday there was a direct link between increased violence at home and the spiralling conflict in Syria.
