Correspondent of Turkish state broadcaster TRT Metin Turan has been visited by his family, sources in the Turkish embassy in Cairo told the Anadolu Agency on Saturday.

According to the sources, the visit took place on Thursday in the Wadi al-Natrun prison.

"The TRT correspondent is well," his family told the AA.

Turan was arrested along with AA correspondent Heba Zakariya at Fath Mosque in Cairo's Ramses Square during clashes between security forces and demonstrators in August.
