Turkey Arrests 3 Vice News Journalists on Terrorism Charges

Article states:  “ISTANBUL — Terrorism charges in Turkey against three Vice News journalists were denounced Tuesday as baseless by media advocacy groups and a lawyer for the men.”

“I don’t believe the group carried out any activity outside of journalism,” Tahir Elci, the head of the Diyarbakir Bar Association in southeast Turkey, who is representing the three, said Tuesday, calling the allegations “aimed at intimidating journalists covering the conflict in the region.”
