Wall Street Journal Reporter Detained and Released in Turkey

NEW YORK, Dec. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wall Street Journal reporter Dion Nissenbaum is on his way to the United States after being detained for nearly three days by authorities in Turkey. The Journal believes that his detention was related to a reporting ban concerning a video released by the terror group Islamic State.

"While we are relieved that Dion was released unharmed after nearly three days, we remain outraged at his peremptory detention, without any contact with his family, legal counsel or colleagues," said Gerard Baker, editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Nissenbaum, a U.S. citizen and fully accredited correspondent of The Wall Street Journal based in Istanbul, has reported fairly and accurately for the global audience of the Journal, consistent with the rights and responsibilities of a free press, as understood and respected by democratic societies around the world.
