A total of 9 journalists were released, including EPA photojournalist Sedat Suna and Nar photojournalist Tolga Sezgin after having been detained covering the refugees tragedy caused by Erdogan regime following the hard blow it received in Idlib.

Mezopotamia Agency journalist Naci Kaya will remain in custody for an extra two days.

Speaking to ANF, Kaya's lawyer Vedat Ece said that the custody of his client, who was released by the prosecutor's office on Monday, was extended this time on the grounds of "filming in forbidden area" by instructions of the Edirne Public Prosecutor's Office. The lawyer said he objected to the detention and is waiting for a reply.

Rudaw reporter Ismail Yıldız and cameraman Şirin Akgün will also be brought in front of the judge today.
