Turkey charges two British Vice News journalists with aiding a terrorist group

Two British journalists and their local “fixer” have been charged with aiding an unidentified terrorist group in Turkey. Jake Hanrahan, Philip Pendlebury and a local journalist who serves as a translator and guide have been detained in southeast Turkey since Thursday evening. Amnesty International UK called for the release of the journalists: “The decision to detain the journalists was wrong, while the allegation of assisting Islamic state is unsubstantiated, outrageous and bizarre.”
