Breaking News image

American pastor Andrew Brunson, who has been in detention in Turkey for more than two years, has been freed by a court in the western province of Izmir .

Mr Brunson was arrested over alleged links to political groups following the failed 2016 coup attempt in a case that soured US-Turkey relations.

He denied charges of espionage, which could have led to a 35-year jail term.

He was sentenced to three years in prison but will not serve time as he has already been in jail for two years.
