Turkey and Denmark relations under strain
Turkey wants Denmark to account for the release of ten Kurds suspected of funding the PKK, while Denmark continues to wait for answers about Turkey's release of a man suspected to trying to kill a well-known Islam critic.
Turkey is demanding answers from Denmark on the release of ten men who were charged with "terror funding" after raising up to 140 million kroner ($23.8 million) for Kurdish rebels.
The ten Kurds funnelled the money into the now-shuttered Roj TV, which in turn funded the Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK), a militant separatist group considered a terror organisation by the EU and the US.
