A Turkish court has detained and charged two British journalists and a translator working for a US-based media outlet with links to the Takfiri Daesh terror group.

The ruling on Monday by the court in the Kurdish-dominated city of Diyarbakir in southeastern Turkey came as Vice News reporters, identified as Jake Hanrahan and Philip Pendlebury, were reportedly filming a documentary on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) amid a recent surge of violent clashes between the Kurdish militants and Turkish security forces.

According to the court’s statement, the two reporters and their Iraqi translator, Mohammed Ismael Rasool, were formally charged with “engaging in terror activity” on behalf of the Daesh terrorist group as well as “intentionally aiding an armed organization.”
