TEHRAN - A senior Iranian member of parliament said on Sunday that Iranian forces had captured a high-level member of the Turkish Kurd rebel group the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

"Our country's intelligence forces have carried out an important task and have arrested the second (highest) person in the PKK," Alaedin Boroujerdi, head of parliament's foreign affairs committee, told the semi-official Mehr news agency.

No officials in Iran or Turkey were immediately available to confirm the report.
