Anti-terrorist squad hit by staff shortage

The special anti-terrorist unit DSI set up a year ago is not functioning as it should, reports ANP news service.

The armed forces and police are unable to supply the elite corps with the personnel it needs and there is also a high turnover of staff. The future of the DSI is therefore at risk, according to sources close to the unit.
