ISTANBUL (AP) — A Turkish official says police have overpowered an armed man who stormed the ruling party's local branch in Istanbul, broke a top-floor window and shouted slogans.

Wednesday's incident occurred a day after two members of a banned leftist group held a prosecutor hostage in an Istanbul courthouse, and all three died in a shootout between the hostage-takers and police. It was not clear if the two incidents were related.
