Swedish journalist deported from Turkey

A Swedish journalism student arrested during demonstrations in Istanbul's Taksim Square at the weekend is being deported back to Sweden, Monday evening. Sarah Ohlsson will not be allowed back in Turkey for a year.

"I am sad that I may not come back to Turkey and I have to go away from all my friends," Sarah Olsson tells Swedish Radio on the phone from Istanbul while waiting to be deported.

Asked how she was treated in prison, she said: "Physically completely ok but phychologically...it has been difficult."
