Turkey detains two over attack on parliament guard

Published

on

ANKARA: Turkish authorities detained two alleged left-wing militants who attacked a parliament security officer with a razor-like object in Ankara, the prosecutor’s office said.

The suspects had already been charged before the attack with membership of the far-left Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C).

The incident took place at the parliament visitors entrance on Tuesday, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

One of the suspects had a bag containing wires and a black box that raised fears of a bomb, but this was later dismissed.

The DHKP-C has carried out sporadic attacks over the years and is listed as a terror group by Turkey, the European Union and the United States.

Fahrettin Altun, communications director at the Turkish presidency, said on Twitter that the attack targeted the “national will” and “the peace of the nation”.

NEW YORK: JPMorgan Chase cut ties with American pharmaceutical giant Purdue Pharma over its alleged involvement in the US opioid addiction epidemic, a source close to the matter said Thursday.
JPMorgan informed the drug manufacturer it would need to find a new bank to carry out JPMorgan’s current responsibilities, which include cash flow management and invoices.
The decision was made in order to prevent any damage to JPMorgan’s reputation over to its involvement with Purdue, the source added.
Purdue became a dominant force in the pharmaceutical industry largely due to the blockbuster painkiller OxyContin.
There are hundreds of lawsuits in various states against both Purdue and its owner the Sackler family, who are accused of pushing for the prescription of OxyContin despite knowing how addictive it is.
