Greek prime minister says Turkey frees 2 Greek soldiers

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says Turkey has freed from prison two Greek soldiers detained for allegedly illegally crossing the border between the two countries on March 1.

Tsipras has hailed the decision as "an act of justice" that will help boost friendship between the two historic regional rivals.

In a statement Tuesday, Tsipras thanked the two soldiers and their families for their "fortitude and patience" while in prison in the Turkish town of Edirne.
