Turkish lawmaker Imam Tascier wrote on Twitter on Friday he was being detained by the counter-terror squad police, becoming the 12th deputy from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) to be arrested in terrorism-related investigations.

Police raided the homes and detained the joint leaders of the HDP, the second-biggest opposition party in parliament, and other HDP lawmakers early on Friday after they refused to give testimony for crimes linked to "terrorist propaganda".
