Istanbul – Two young Syrians men were abducted in the Turkish city of Istanbul recently. The kidnappers demanded a large amount of ransom, after sending pictures of the kidnapped people, showing the two young men, Syrian Kurds, with signs of torture.
The Turkish government recently said that it received some information from the Dutch police that the Dutch journalist “Ans Boersma” has ties with the Syrian terrorist movement Jahbat al-Nusra. “On this basis, we have taken action and we have taken a precautionary measure,” says a President Erdogan’s spokesman on Twitter.
Acting Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced Thursday that the embassy and all consulates of his country in the United States will close. Maduro broke the diplomatic ties with the US before, because Washington recognized Juan Guaido, who declared himself the interim president.
