A Turkish man, aged 23, wanted for murder and belonging to an armed terrorist organisation has been apprehended in Hungary in the act of people smuggling with an accomplice, the Zala County police said on the website.

Local police tried to stop a van on road number 76 near Sarmellek, western Hungary, on Nov 16 but the driver deflected and tried to flee after driving away and stopping on a minor dirt road.

The van he abandoned included ten illegal migrants who identified themselves as Turkish citizens.

The Turkish driver, aged 27, was apprehended a few days later near Szekesfehervar, along with an 23-year-old accomplice who had also been involved in people smuggling with a follow-up vehicle.

Zala police started a procedure against both and the court ordered their pre-trial detention.

The investigation revealed that the younger man was wanted by Turkish authorities for possessing a gun, committing murder and activities as member of a terrorist organisation.
