6 detained in anti-terrorism operation in İstanbul
Six individuals who are suspected of involvement in an attack on a police station in İstanbul on Saturday were detained in an anti-terrorism operation in İstanbul's Beyoğlu and Maltepe districts on Monday.

Teams from the İstanbul Police Department's anti-terrorism unit, with the support of special operations and riot police teams, launched the operation in several locations in Beyoğlu and Maltepe following the bomb attack on a police station in Bahçelievler two days earlier.

The six suspects detained in the operation were checked out medically before being taken to the İstanbul Police Department on Vatan Street.

Two terrorists attacked the 75. Yıl Police Station in the Yenibosna neighborhood of Bahçelievler on Saturday with Kalashnikov rifles and hand grenades, injuring two police officers. A female assailant with suspected links to an ultra-leftist terrorist group was captured after a clash with officers at the police station.
