Plane carrying U.S. pastor Brunson leaves Turkey, heads to Germany then U.S. - lawyer

ANKARA (Reuters) - A plane carrying the U.S. pastor at the centre of a row between Ankara and Washington, took off from the airport in Turkey’s western Izmir province late on Friday, a witness said, hours after a court ruled he could go free.

Andrew Brunson would fly to Germany, stay there for two days and then travel to the United States, his lawyer, Ismail Cem Halavurt, said.
