Text size Aa Aa

Two armed people entered an office of Turkey’s ruling AK Party in an Istanbul suburb on Wednesday, the private Dogan news agency reported, a day after leftist militants took a prosecutor hostage in a courthouse in the city.

Dogan said police sealed off the road in front of the building in the Kartal district on Istanbul’s Asian side. Footage on Dogan’s website showed several police cars outside the building. No further details were immediately available. (Writing by Daren Butler; Editing by Nick Tattersall and John Stonestreet)
