ISTANBUL - Two Canadian Broadcasting Corp reporters covering protests in Istanbul were detained by Turkish police on Wednesday, and later released, the two reporters said in messages on the social media site Twitter.

"My exclusive 'tour' of the Turkish justice system is over!" Derek Stoffel tweeted after his release from Turkish custody.

His colleague Sasa Petricic was more succinct. "We're out," he tweeted.

CBC had said it had been in touch with the two reporters after their detention, which took place as they reported on the fierce demonstrations that have been taking place in Turkey for almost two weeks.
