Turkey detains Yemeni activist at Ataturk airport

The Turkish authorities arrested Yemeni activist Jalal Al-Salahi at Ataturk airport.

Activists on social broadcast a video footage for the activist Halal al-Salahi announcing his detention at the airport without any justification, accusing the Muslim Brotherhood and Qatar of being behind his arrest.

He said he was detained despite carrying a US passport and a valid visa.

Activists said al-Salahi was on his way to visit his family in Istanbul, and that the arrest was against the background of his proposals critical of the Brotherhood.
