The U.S. Department of Treasury announced yesterday that its Office of Foreign Assets Control has imposed sanctions on Turkey’s Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gul and its Minister of Interior Suleyman Soylu.  They are leaders of Turkish government organizations responsible for the arrest and detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson. Brunson has lived in Turkey for more than 20 years.  According to the Treasury Department:Pastor Andrew Brunson has reportedly been a victim of unfair and unjust detention by the Government of Turkey.  He was arrested in Izmir, Turkey in October 2016, and with an absence of evidence to support the charges, he was accused of aiding armed terrorist organizations and obtaining confidential government information for political and military espionage. Vox, reporting on the Treasury Department’s action, says that Brunson’s case has become a personal issue for President Trump and Vice President Pence, and is important to many Christian evangelicals.  Turkey, however, apparently sees Brunson’s case as tied to its attempt to get the U.S. to extradite Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen to Turkey.

Directly reading documents and being able to answer questions from them is an
unsolved challenge. To avoid its inherent difficulty, question answering (QA)
has been directed towards using Knowledge Bases (KBs) instead, which has proven
effective. Unfortunately KBs often suffer from being too restrictive, as the
schema cannot support certain types of answers, and too sparse, e.g. Wikipedia
contains much more information than Freebase. In this work we introduce a new
method, Key-Value Memory Networks, that makes reading documents more viable by
utilizing different encodings in the addressing and output stages of the memory
read operation. To compare using KBs, information extraction or Wikipedia
documents directly in a single framework we construct an analysis tool,
WikiMovies, a QA dataset that contains raw text alongside a preprocessed KB, in
the domain of movies. Our method reduces the gap between all three settings. It
also achieves state-of-the-art results on the existing WikiQA benchmark.
