A court in Turkey's Kurdish-dominated southeast on Monday remanded in custody two British journalists working for US-based media outlet Vice News on terror charges, in a case that has sparked fresh concern about press freedom.
The two British reporters and their Iraqi translator have been charged with "engaging in terror activity" on behalf of the Daesh extremist group, the court in Diyarbakir said.
A fourth suspect, their driver, was allowed to go free, an AFP correspondent reported from the court.
They have now been taken to a jail in Diyarbakir ahead of an eventual trial. There were no further details over the evidence of their alleged links to Daesh jihadists.
The reporters were detained last week covering unrest in southeast Turkey which has raged as the government presses a military offensive against Kurdish rebels.
They had earlier been questioned by prosecutors who ruled to take the case to court.
The four men, including the driver, had been held in police custody since their detention last week.
