    Background: After an exchange of fire in an Istanbul residential area, Turkish security forces shot one alleged anarchist dead and captured three others on Monday. Two of the captives were women -- one of them had been wounded in the shooting.

    The incident happened during a security operation against "known anarchists". The dead man and those arrested were not named. But there were reports that they were connected with the underground Turkish People's Liberation Army, which has claimed responsibility for a number of recant guerrilla outrages.

    SYNOPSIS: Turkish security forces move in on a house in Istanbul after coming under fire during an operation to ferret out anarchists on Monday. The swoop was intended to track down members of the underground Turkish Liberation Army, which has claimed responsibility for a number of recent outrages. These have included the murder of an Israeli diplomat in Istanbul and of three foreign technicians kidnapped from a NATO base on the Black Sea coast.

    After an exchange of fire, the forces broke into the house in a residential area of Istanbul and captured three people. One was a man, the other two women -- one of them wounded. All were alleged to be anarchists -- but they were not named.

    A fourth person, another man, was shot dead during the exchange of fire. The operation against anarchists came at a time when the political situation in Turkey was tense as a result of the deadlock in the Presidential elections.

    Hi, I would like to inform you about this shot.

    First of all, this affair happened in March 19, 1973, not in March 21, 1973. These were members of the Communist Party of Turkey (Marxist-Leninist), a Maoist group founded in April 24, 1972 (not affiliated with original pro-Soviet TKP), so not People's Liberation Army of Turkey (and even their news published in press under martial law stated that they were members of the youth wing of "Clandestine Communist Party of Turkey" ["Türkiye Gizi Komünist Partisi", a non existed group but referred to pro-Soviet TKP]).

    Their names were Ali ?enci (man, first seen one in film), Feryal Sar?o?ullar? (woman, second seen one in film), Ahmet Muharrem Çiçek (man, third seen one in film, dead) and Kutsiye Bozoklar (woman, last seen one in film at the car scene, after this raid become paralysed).
