Necip Şiringil, Emrullah Ayaz and Taner Aykut Al were kidnapped after a stone quarry where they work was raided by a group of PKK members in Tatvan. All three men were released by the group in the Yeşil Mezra region of Tatvan at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday. The quarry workers later went to the Tatvan District Gendarmerie Command where they were questioned about their abduction.
