Turkish court sentences German-Turkish journalist to jail on terrorism charges -Anadolu

ISTANBUL, July 16 (Reuters) - A Turkish court on Thursday sentenced German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yucel in absentia to 2 years and 9 months to jail for terrorism propaganda, state-owned Anadolu agency said, in a case that had strained ties between Ankara and Berlin.

Yucel was released from custody in February 2018, after being kept in jail for a year without an indictment. He returned to Berlin right after his release. Yucel denies the charges against him. (Reporting by Ali Kucukgocmen Editing by Ece Toksabay)
