3 Turks may be tried for int'l terrorism charges

Italian prosecutors on Wednesday asked a court to sentence three Turks to serve between eight and 10 years in prison each on international terror charges, according to an Italian news agency. Er Avni, Remzi Ucucu and Zeynep Kilic are accused of participating in activities of the DHKP-C, an outlawed leftist group that aims to topple the Turkish government and replace it with a Marxist one, ANSA reported. Prosecutors asked that Avni and Ucucu each be sentenced to 10 years, and Kilic to eight, according to ANSA.
