Turkey Journalists’ Trial

A court in Istanbul has convicted six journalists of terror-related charges, sentencing them to lengthy prison terms in a case that had heightened concerns over freedoms of expression and media. The court, however, on Friday acquitted five other journalists of the now-defunct Zaman newspaper, which was close to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey blames for a failed coup in 2016. Gulen denies involvement. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
