French photojournalist held in Turkey ends hunger strike: RSF

People take part in a protest calling for the release of Mathias Depardon, a French journalist held in Turkey, in front of the Embassy of Turkey in Paris on May 25, 2017

The visit may have been granted due to the promise Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made to his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Thursday during the NATO summit -- that he would "rapidly" look into Depardon's case, Macron's office said.

Turkish authorities have said he was detained over "propaganda for a terror group" -- a reference to outlawed Kurdish militants -- and this could lead to a judicial investigati
