Turkish government arrests German journalists

This video is called Turkey Faces Blowback For Support Of ISIS Fighters In Syria.

So much for NATO military alliance brotherhood … The Greek government hurts its own people with draconian austerity policies because of pressure by its German and French NATO allies. Meanwhile, the Greek government bankrupts the Greek economy, spending lots of money buying French and German weapons, which they say is because of fear of their Turkish NATO allies.

Then, the German government spies on the Turkish government. And now, the Turkish government violates press freedom for German journalists (like they violate human rights of their own people).

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Three Germans arrested in Turkey

Sunday Oct 12, 2014, 17:12 (Update: 12-10-14, 17:29)

The journalists reported on the protests in the city of Diyarbakir

In the Turkish city of Diyarbakir, in the southeast of the country, three German journalists have been arrested. It is not clear of what they are suspected.

They say they were in Diyarbakir to report about the protests by Kurds. Last week, [the Turkish government crackdown on these protests] caused dozens of deaths.


One of the arrested journalists is the photographer Björn Kietzmann. He sent after his arrest a tweet stating: “Arrested since 4 hours together with 2 other german journalist because of covering #kobane protests in #diyarbakir #turkey”.

The Kurdish protests are against the Turkish government, which basically supports the ISIS terrorist violence in Kobane town and its surroundings against the Kurds of northern Syria (Rojava).
