A Swedish journalist has been arrested by Turkish police during demonstrations in Istanbul's Taksim Square, Saturday evening.

The arrested woman was taken to a police station. A lawyer says to Swedish tabloid Expressen that she is doing well and that the police stated that she would be held for a few hours or overnight.

The Swedish Foreign Ministry confirmed to news agency TT that a Swedish woman has been arrested in Istanbul.

"A Swedish woman aged 25, resident in central Sweden, has been arrested in Istanbul. The woman has a lawyer and we are following the matter through the Consulate General in Istanbul, which has also spoken to the woman's lawyer," says Joakim Edvardsson Reimar at the Foreign Ministry's press service.

According to the Foreign Ministry, negotiations will be held on Monday.
