Authorities have released an AFP photographer, along with 12 other people who were detained as part of an investigation into a group prosecutors accuse of having links to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) terrorist organization.

A court early on Saturday, however, ordered 35 other suspects formally arrested pending trial over their alleged involvement in the Union of Kurdistan Communities - which authorities say is an offshoot of the PKK.

AFP photographer Mustafa Özer was among 48 suspects, including a number of other journalists, detained in police raids in seven cities on Dec. 20, sparking increased concerns over media freedoms in Turkey.
