People wave national flags outside a courthouse before the release of Ekrem Dumanli, editor-in-chief of Zaman newspaper, in Istanbul, Turkey, Friday, Dec. 19, 2014. A local court ordered the release of Dumanli six days after his detention. Police conducted raids in a dozen Turkish cities Sunday, detaining 32 people — including journalists, TV producers and police — known to be close to a movement led by a U.S.-based moderate Islamic cleric who is a strong critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It was the latest crackdown on cleric Fethullah Gulen's movement, which the government has accused of orchestrating an alleged plot to try to bring it down. (AP Photo)ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey's state-run news agency says a prosecutor is demanding that an arrest warrant be issued for the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen — a former ally-turned-foe of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Iraqi Kurdish forces survey a bridge rigged with explosives by Islamic State militants, as they inspect the area in Zumar, Iraq, Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014. Iraqi Kurdish forces battling Islamic State militants managed on Thursday to open up a corridor to Sinjar Mountain so that thousands of people from the country's Yazidi minority who have been trapped there can flee, said a senior Kurdish official. Tens of thousands of Yazidis became trapped in the mountain in early August, when the IS extremists captured the towns of Sinjar and Zumar, prompting the exodus. (AP Photo/Zana Ahmed)BAGHDAD (AP) — An Iraqi lawmaker says sporadic clashes between Iraqi Kurdish fighters and Islamic State extremists and other logistics problems are delaying the evacuation of the last Yazidis still trapped on Sinjar mountain.
