Two journalists arrested in separate cases
Ünal Tanık, the former editor-in-chief of the shuttered news website Rota Haber, was detained in the northwestern city of Yalova today, the daily Hürriyet reported. Tanık was wanted as part of the government's post-attempted coup investigation for allegedly "being a member of an armed terrorist organization," meaning the terrorist organization FETÖ/PDY that Turkey accuses the exiled preacher Fethullah Gülen of maintaining. Police received a tip as to where the journalist was hiding, according to Hürriyet. Tanık will be transferred to Istanbul.
