American Pastor Brunson Moved from Prison to House Arrest in Turkey


American Pastor Andrew Brunson has been moved out of prison and put under house arrest in Turkey. It's the first sign of hope for the pastor who had been been imprisoned by the Turkish regime for nearly two years.
Brunson faces up to 15 years in prison on charges of "committing crimes on behalf of terror groups." The 50-year-old evangelical pastor from Black Mountain, North Carolina strongly denies the accusations. He wrote earlier this year that he's in prison not for anything he's done wrong, but because he's a Christian pastor.
Aykan Erdemir, a former member of Turkish Parliament and now a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, talked about the development on Twitter.
