ANKARA, June 25. /ITAR-TASS reporter Kirill Zharov /. Police of Ankara raided this morning 30 addresses of residence and whereabouts of persons who participated in the riots and clashes in Turkey. According to local TV, currently 20 people are detained, but searches are still conducted and their number may increase.
The operation is conducted by officers of the Anti-Terrorism Directorate of Security department. Many of the rioters are considered members of various organizations recognized as terrorist in Turkey.
