More than 10 MPs detained in Turkey

Turkey detained two co-leaders and ten other lawmakers of Turkey's pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) early on Friday over reluctance to give testimony for crimes linked to "terrorist propaganda."

The Turkish Interior Ministry said detention orders for 13 MPs were issued, but only 12 were detained. Lawyers had earlier said 15 MPs were detained.
Turkish police raided the Ankara house of co-leader Figen Yuksekdag and co-leader Selahattin Demirtas in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, the party's lawyers told Reuters.
