Press freedom organizations call on the winners in Turkey's presidential and parliamentary elections, being held June 24, to prioritize press freedom and release jailed journalists.

Authorities continue to prosecute journalists on charges of insulting the president or 'anti-state' activity. (Picture: Reuters/Goran Tomasevic)
