Three men have been arrested in north-eastern Greece on suspicion of trying to smuggle weapons and ammunition into Turkey, Greek police say.
Two are British citizens – the third a UK resident. At least one of them is reported to be of Iraqi Kurdish origin.
The men were in possession of 22 firearms and more than 200,000 rounds of ammunition, police say.
They are suspected of being part of a “criminal gang”. They are due to be charged on Tuesday.
They have reportedly asked to speak in court in Kurdish.
The UK Foreign Office says it is “urgently looking into the reports”.
