Germany says Turkey's jailing of a German-Turkish correspondent for 'Die Welt' newspaper is straining ties between Berlin and Ankara. The detention of Deniz Yücel, a dual national, has sparked protests across Germany.
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.
German journalist Deniz Yücel accused Ankara of "dragging its feet" in his first interview from a prison cell in Turkey. He called for a speedy and fair trial and described his prolonged isolation as torture.
German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yücel has been imprisoned in Turkey since February. Ankara has until November 28 to make a statement to the European Court of Human Rights. Yücel's lawyer explains what will happen next.
Peter Steudtner, the German rights activist who was detained for four months in Istanbul, has told DW about life in Turkish prison. He decried Turkey's judicial system, where German citizens are held without charge.
