Journalist Baysal detained for her social media posts

Turkish police raided journalist Nurcan Baysal’s apartment and detained her for her social media posts on Monday.

Baysal’s home in Diyarbakir was raided by Turkish police on Monday morning. She was detained for her social media posts that criticized government’s decision to attack Afrin. The police confiscated her mobile phone and personal computer.

Turkish police started a manhunt for people who shared messages against Turkish army’s attacks on Afrin since Saturday.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan also threatened people and said those who will attend protests will pay a heavy price.
