Turkey journalists and activist acquitted of terrorism charges

A Turkish court has acquitted two journalists and a human rights activist of terrorism charges.

The three defendants had been accused of spreading terrorist propaganda for their work with a Kurdish newspaper, which has since been closed down.

But the three maintained they were defending free speech amid a clampdown by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Applause erupted in the courtroom as the verdict was read out, the BBC's Mark Lowen reported from Istanbul.

Erol Onderoglu, the Turkey representative for press freedom watchdog Reporters Without Borders (RSF), journalist Ahmet Nesin, and Sebnem Korur Fincanci, chairwoman of Turkey's Human Rights Foundation, were arrested in June 2016.
