Seven expatriates living in Turkey were detained by police on Wednesday and face deportation for their alleged participation in the ongoing protests, a source has told Hurriyet Daily News. Two French citizens were among those arrested.

Some seven foreign nationals living in Turkey were detained June 5 on accusations that they were helping provoke the Gezi Park protests. Six of them in Istanbul and one in Ankara were detained, and a deportation demand was reported for four of them.

Evaluation procedures are continuing into the two French citizens, two Iranians, a Greek, a U.S. citizen and a German, Turkey’s Interior Minister Muammer Güler said on June 6.

One of the French citizens is a student in Turkey for Erasmus, an exchange student program, while the other is in Turkey for a European Union project, a source with knowledge of the issue told the Hürriyet Daily News.
