Vice News Journalist Freed From Turkish Prison

Mohammed Rasool has been released on bail from Turkish prison.

Vice News have been campaigning tirelessly for the release of Mohammed Rasool from a Turkish Prison.

Rasool was arrested on 27th August 2015, along with his colleagues Phil Pendlebury and Jake Hanrahan.

Although both Pendlebury and Hanrahan were released after 11 days in prison, Rasool was held for a further 120 days.

Rasool is a 25 year old journalist for Vice News, and was working in Turkey at the time of his arrest.

He was held in a high security Turkish prison and charged with 'assisting a terrorist organisation'.


Rasool, Pendlebury and Hanrahan were covering the conflict in Turkey's Kurdish south-east region.

They were covering the renewed violence between Kurdish militants and the government, and had been travelling to various towns along the Turkish-Iraqi border.
