Turkey's top prosecutor has ordered the detention of 91 people on charges of links to Kurdish rebels, ratcheting up pressure on the PKK ahead of next year's elections, Bloomberg reported.

So far, police have detained 46 suspects, including some former municipal officials from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported. According to prosecutors, they are accused of funding the PKK, which is seeking Kurdish autonomy in southeastern Turkey.

The Turkish government stepped up pressure on pro-Kurdish forces after the Peoples' Democratic Party helped Turkey's main opposition party, the Republican People's Party, win mayoral elections in Ankara and Istanbul in the 2019 local elections.
