Turkey deports Dutch journo over 'security-related concerns'

Turkey yesterday deported a journalist for the largest Dutch financial newspaper, Het Financieele Dagblad, citing unspecified 'security-related concerns', the paper said.

Ans Boersma, 31, had been visiting an immigration office in Istanbul to extend her visa on Wednesday when she was detained, the paper said.

"And suddenly you're sitting in the airplane back to the Netherlands," Boersma said in a tweet yesterday morning. "I've been "declared an 'undesirable person' in Turkey."

Asked about the case, a Turkish official said: "At this time, all I can say is that her deportation wasn't related to her journalistic activities or her reporting from Turkey."
