Istanbul: Two Turkish journalists charged in a hugely controversial case with revealing state secrets and held in jail for the last three months were released early Friday after Turkey`s constitutional court ruled their rights had been violated.

The Cumhuriyet newspaper`s editor-in-chief Can Dundar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gul walked free from the Silivri jail on the outskirts of Istanbul to be greeted by jubilant supporters and family, the Cihan news agency and their newspaper said.
