Two unknown gunmen have raided an office of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party in a suburb of the city of Istanbul.

On Wednesday, two armed men entered the building in Istanbul’s Kartal district, ordered all those inside to leave, and reached the top floor of the seven-story building.

The assailants then broke a number of windows and hung a Turkish flag with a sword on it.

Special police forces have been dispatched to the scene.

The development comes a day after Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) gunmen raided the sixth floor of the Caglayan courthouse, and took prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz hostage.
