Turkish police have detained 10 people including the local director of Amnesty International and other rights activists on suspicion of membership of a terrorist organization, Amnesty said on Thursday in what it called a “grotesque abuse of power”.

The detentions came less than a month after a court ordered the arrest of the chairman of Amnesty’s Turkey branch, Taner Kilic, on the same charge in a crackdown following an attempted military coup in July 2016. Kilic remains in jail pending trial.

Just another day in NATO member, poison supplying, ISIS and Al Qaeda supporting and trusted US ally Turkey.

Be seeing you
