Mezopotamya Agency (MA) correspondents İdris Sayılgan and Naci Kaya have been taken into custody in the Edirne province this afternoon.

According to the Mezopotamya Agency (MA), their correspondents İdris Sayılgan and Naci Kaya were arrested in Pazarkule district of Edirne while covering the developments in the area which has witnessed an influx of refugees trying to leave Turkey for Europe since Turkey announced the day before that refugees won’t be stopped from leaving the country after the killing of 33 Turkish soldiers in Idlib.

Sayılgan and Kaya were reportedly arrested for working in restricted zone and have been held at the Edirne Central Gendarmerie Command since 15:00 Saturday afternoon.

MA said that there are some other journalists who were arrested in the same area.
