Turkish security forces have arrested 11 Jehovah's Witnesses, including a Briton and a Canadian, in the southern province of Adana, the Anatolian News Agency reported. It said they were picked up in a weeklong operation and accused of engaging in religious activities in violation of Turkey's secular laws. The agency did not cite specific charges, but members of the Christian sect who are arrested in Turkey are usually prosecuted for seeking converts.
