What do people in Germany think about the diplomatic rift between Ankara and Berlin? DW gathered some responses to the strong words coming from the government after the jailing of a human rights activist, and to the media coverage of the issue.
Another German national who had been held in Turkey for "political reasons" has been released from jail, the German Foreign Ministry said. Nine German citizens still remain behind bars in Turkey amid diplomatic tensions.
After rejecting the Turkish president's remarks, Berlin has urged both countries to "keep cool heads." Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused German authorities of "Nazi practices" after several cities canceled referendum rallies.
German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yücel, jailed in Turkey, has been moved from solitary confinement, according to media reports. He was detained in February and accused of spreading terrorist propaganda.
Even an acting government can rule, asserts the German Chancellery. But with each day that passes, it becomes increasingly clear that it's time to put together a new government, writes DW's Jens Thurau.
