Police have detained dozens of people, including journalists, politicians, lawyers, artists, and activists in early morning raids across 21 cities.

The raids carried out as part of a Diyarbakır based investigation mostly targeted pro-Kurdish organizations, including the Mezopotamya Agency (MA), the Yeni Yaşam Newspaper, the Lawyers for Freedom Association (ÖHD) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).

The charges are still unclear because of the confidentiality order on the investigation, the Diyarbakır Bar Association said.
