Turkey Frees British Vice News Journalists

Two Vice News journalists from Britain arrested in Turkey have been released but their Turkey-based Iraqi translator has been kept in prison, a senior Turkish official and one of their lawyers have told Al Jazeera.

 

Jake Hanrahan and Philip Pendlebury, working for the US-based network, along with their translator Mohammed Ismael Rasool and a driver, were taken into custody in front of their hotel in Diyarbakir last Thursday following an anonymous tip to the police.
