Kemal Sancılı, the publisher of the now-defunct pro-Kurdish newspaper Özgür Gündem, has been arrested on accusations of membership in a terrorist organization.

Özgür Gündem, along with 14 other media outlets, was shut down in line with a post-coup government decree on Oct. 29, 2016.

Detained in the southeastern province of Urfa late on Monday, Sancılı joined hundreds of media workers Turkey is currently holding under arrest. (Turkey Purge)
