Berzan Güneş, a reporter for the pro-Kurdish Mezopotamya online news agency has been put in pre-trial detention due to his social media postings.

Güneş was rounded up in the eastern province of Sirnak upon an earlier warrant early Monday.

He appeared before the court on accusations of making propaganda on behalf of a terror group and was put behind bars later in the day.

Gunes’s camera and electronic devices were seized.
