German authorities say they have arrested a Turkish man on charges he was a member of a banned leftist group that seeks armed struggle against the Turkish government.

The federal prosecutors' office said Thursday that 37-year-old Erol G., whose last name wasn't released in accordance with German privacy laws, was arrested by Cologne police on Wednesday.

He's accused of being a member since at least early 2007 of the Turkish Marxist terrorist organization DHKP-C. In addition to raising funds for the group, prosecutors say he distributed propaganda material for it.
