Salih Muslim, former co-chair of the Democratic Union Party, or PYD, was detained in the Czech capital of Prague on Saturday based on a Turkish request for his arrest.
Czech police confirmed that a 67-year-old man had been apprehended in Prague at the behest of Turkish Interpol, but did not specify the suspect's name.

Muslim was listed as Turkey's most-wanted terrotist earlier in February with a 1 million Dollars reward.
