The court released the other six persons detained. Among those released was a journalist for the Dicle News Agency who had been detained for passing on footage to Roj TV.Police carried out the searches after the Izmir DTP branch issued a press statement in support of the arrested DTP head for the party's Diyarbakir branch, Hilmi Aydogdu.
