Tensions flare between US and Turkey over US pastor’s imprisonment

AROUND THE WORLD- Tensions flare between US and Turkey over US pastor’s imprisonment: Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan said yesterday that Ankara would “stand its ground” in the face of US sanctions that President Donald Trump threatened to slap the country with over the imprisonment of US Pastor Andrew Brunson. Bronson is being accused of “helping the group Ankara says was behind a failed military coup in 2016,” Reuters reports. The pastor, who has denied the charges, faces up to 35 years in prison and is currently under house arrest.
