Illegal migrants were deported and the three suspects were arrested. The suspects sought asylum in Austria in the past but were rejected on the grounds that they were related to the terrorist organization PKK, sources said.

The suspects will also be prosecuted for posters and t-shirts of PKK, which were found in the van.
