Thousands of ancient coins seized in Aegean Turkey

Turkish security forces on Thursday confiscated around 10,000 historical coins dating back to Roman and Byzantine eras in the Aegean province of Kütahya.

In an anti-smuggling operation, the gendarmerie raided a gas station after a tip off that a group of people were plotting a historical artifacts smuggling.

The gendarmerie caught four suspects in the act.

The suspects were taken to the provincial office of gendarmerie following medical check-up.
