Mothers call for release of Greek soldiers held in Turkey


Members of the "Greek Mothers" group held a demonstration outside the Turkish Consulate in Thessaloniki Monday to demand the immediate release of the two Greek soldiers who have been held in a Turkish prison since March 1 without charge. Demonstrators gathered outside the consulate on Aghiou Dimitriou Street, holding photos of servicemen Dimitris Kouklatzis and Angelos Mitretodis, in response to a call made via social media. Their request to meet Turkish Consul General Orhan Yalman Okan to demand their release was refused. [ANA-MPA]
