EU Condemns Turkey’s Arrest of Academics as ’Extremely Worrying’

The European Union on Saturday condemned as "extremely worrying" Turkey's arrest of academics who signed a petition criticizing a military crackdown in the Kurdish-dominated southeast.

"The steps taken against the Turkish academics who signed a declaration regarding events in the southeast of Turkey are an extremely worrying development," an EU spokesperson on foreign affairs said in a statement.

"They are no longer detained, but the procedures against them are ongoing."
