A court in southeastern Turkey on Thursday ordered the release of two British reporters working for US-based media outlet Vice News who were being held on terror charges, a judicial source told AFP.

The two reporters, who are jailed in the city of Adana are expected to be formally released in a few hours after the decision by the Diyarbakir court.

However their Iraqi translator, who was also arrested, remains in custody as the investigation continues, the source added, citing the court's ruling.
