Romania court rules Turkish woman must stay under arrest
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — A Romanian court has ruled that a Turkish woman wanted in Turkey on alleged links to Kurdish militants must remain in custody until her extradition hearing.

The court also ruled against consulting the European court of Justice to clarify laws regarding refugee status. She will appeal.
