Family from Kobanê detained in Mersin

Turkish police have detained a Kurdish woman from Kobanê in Akdeniz district of southern Mersin province along with her 15-day-old baby.

Mersin Chief Public Prosecutor's Office targeted a woman from Kobanê on charge of “being a member of a (terrorist) organization”, which is systematically and arbitrarily used by the Turkish judicial system against the Kurdish population in the Turkish state’s all-out war in Kurdistan territory.

Military police raided the house of the Kurdish family from Kobanê in Çay neighbourhood of the Akdeniz District on Friday.

Following the police raid, the Kurdish woman who gave birth 15 days ago was detained along with her baby and husband.
