    Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk, who is due to appear in a Turkish court in mid-December, received the German book industry's peace prize on Sunday. Speaking at the award ceremony where he was praised for novels that trace "the imprints of the East on the West and those of the West on the East", Pamuk stood by his words on the killing of Armenians and Kurds.

    "I repeat, I said loud and clear that one million Armenians and 30,000 Kurds were killed in Turkey," Mr Pamuk said.

    Mr Pamuk is being charged with "denigrating" the national identity in Turkey. If found guilty under Turkish law, the penalty carries up to three years in prison.
