ISTANBUL - A Turkish court ordered the release on Friday of a well-known academic and 15 other people who had been detained while on trial over accusations of links to Kurdish militants, state media reported.

The order appeared to be one of the first outcomes of legal reforms tightening up conditions for courts to hold people in jail before verdicts.

The changes were pushed through this month amid complaints by campaigners, and the country's own prime minister, over the power of the country's prosecutors.
