Turkey deports Dutch journalist over 'security-related concerns' - paper

AMSTERDAM, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Turkey deported a journalist for the largest Dutch daily financial paper on Thursday, Het Financieele Dagblad, citing unspecified ‘security-related concerns’, the paper said.

Ans Boersma, 31, had been visiting an immigration office to extend her visa on Wednesday when she was detained, the paper said.

Editor-In-Chief Jan Bonjer called her deportation a “flagrant violation of press freedom.”
