ANKARA - President Tayyip Erdogan responded to Berlin's criticism of Turkey's arrest of a German journalist by saying on Friday Deniz Yucel was a "German agent" and a member of a militant Kurdish armed group.

"It isn't because a correspondent of Die Welt was arrested," Erdogan told an awards ceremony in Istanbul. "It is because this person hid in the German embassy as a member of the PKK and a German agent for one month. When we told them to hand him over to be tried, they refused."
