U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson arrived to Aliaga courhouse and prison compound to attend a court hearing in Turkey on Friday (October 12) amid reports he could be released.
The Trump administration is hopeful that Brunson could be freed at the hearing, but the State Department has said it was unaware of any deal with the Turkish government for his release.
NBC News and The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the United States and Turkey had reached an agreement in which some charges against Brunson would be dropped and he would be released at the hearing or soon after.
