Germany's foreign minister has spoken out against Turkey's decision to remove the accreditation of three German journalists. Heiko Maas called the decision "unacceptable" and said he would campaign against it. The reporters were given 10 days to leave the country. It is thought to be the first time Turkey has formally rejected the accreditation of foreign journalists. In mid-2016 dozens of Turkish journalists were jailed for alleged links to a group the government blames for a failed coup attempt.
