Family fears over Turkish men arrested in Malaysia The families of three Turkish nationals arrested in early May in Malaysia over suspected links to ISIL say they fear the men will be sent to their home country. Malaysian authorities detained the men under a security law, but human rights groups say they may be targeted for their political opposition to Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The men's families fear they could be tortured or face harsh prison conditions if sent to Turkey.
