Italy seizes passport of alleged PKK member

Italian authorities conducted an counter-terrorism investigation in Nuoro, Sardinia and confiscated the passport of suspect Pierluigi Caria, Turkish Anadolu Agency reported on Saturday, citing sources from Italy. Caria is believed to be linked to the Kurdish YPG/PKK and was allegedly planning to visit Iraq and Syria in the near future.

Another two people were investigated in the operation. Italian authorities looked into the group after a photograph of Caria and French Olivier Francois Jean le Clainche appeared online.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by the European Union.
