Turkish authorities arrest Al Arabiya reporter for covering Turkey's offensive
Turkish authorities arrested on Saturday an Al Arabiya correspondent for covering Turkey's offensive in northeastern Syria.
Zidan Zanklo was picked up in an armored vehicle by Turkish authorities in an area on the Syrian-Turkish border. Zanklo, who is Syrian, was told he has until Monday to leave to Istanbul.
His visa was also cancelled, and his work permit has been confiscated.
Since it began on Tuesday, the Turkish incursion has opened a new front in the eight-year Syrian civil war and drawn international criticism. A war monitor gave a death toll of more than 100 so far and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that almost 200,000 people had fled their homes.
