Police detain veteran journalist
Police in the seaside town of Bodrum today detain veteran journalist Nazlı Ilıcak, most recently a columnist for the now-defunct daily newspaper Özgür Düşünce, the Doğan News Agency reported. The journalist is under investigation under suspicion of affiliation with the Hizmet movement, which the government accuses of orchestrating a failed coup on July 15. Police confiscated books, notebooks, and a computer from the vacation home where Ilıcak was staying. She will be transferred to Istanbul today, the news agency reported.
