Merkel warns Turkey after two more German citizens detainedTwo more German citizens have been arrested in Turkey “for political reasons”, Berlin said Friday, as Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Ankara that Germany could reexamine its policies following the latest Turkish action. The latest arrests bring the total number of German political prisoners in Turkish custody to 12 at a time when ties between the two countries have badly frayed. There is “no legal basis” for detention in most of these cases, Merkel said, according to remarks carried by Germany’s DPA news agency.
