Sultan Eylem Keleş, a journalism student at İzmir’s Ege University was detained over terrorism charges while she was leaving her school on Monday.
Keleş was also a former reporter for JINHA, a pro-Kurdish news agency that was closed down by the government under post-coup emergency rule.
The Contemporary Journalists Association (ÇGD) said this week that Turkey currently keeps 142 journalists under arrest. Meanwhile, several other journalists are also under detention.
A total of 195 media outlets have been shut down by the government since the July 15 coup attempt with around 2,500 media personnel left unemployed.
