Baku, February 21, AZERTAC

PKK terrorists who abducted three journalists working for Anadolu Agency in Turkey's southeastern Mardin province have held the trio for over 48 hours, according to the agency.

The journalists are being held at an unknown location; their cameras were also seized.

Anadolu Agency correspondent Rauf Maltas (31), photojournalist Onur Coban (36) and cameraman Kenan Yesilyurt (26) were assigned last week to Mardin's Nusaybin district to cover stories in the region.

The PKK -- considered a terrorist organization also by the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in late July 2015.
