6 detained in Bingöl on terror propaganda charges on social media

Six people were detained in the eastern province of Bingöl on Thursday on charges of disseminating terrorist propaganda from their social media accounts, according to a statement from the Bingöl Governor’s Office.

The detainees are accused of promoting the propaganda of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG), both of which are considered terrorist organizations by Turkey, from their social media accounts.

The Turkish government has jailed 13 members of the pro-Kurdish democratic opposition in Parliament on terrorism charges and arrested a total of 84 co-mayors from the pro-Kurdish Democratic Regions Party (DBP) in the past couple of months while seizing the administration of 54 municipalities across southern Turkey.
