istanbul - A Turkish court has ordered the release of the German journalist Mesale Tolu. Five others who had been accused of membership of a terrorist organization and propaganda for it were also released.
Turkish media reported this on Monday. They do not mention whether Tolu can leave the country.
The case was a hot topic in Turkish-German relations. The 33-year-old Ulm-born Mesale Tolu was arrested in Turkey at the end of April, where she worked for a left press agency.
