Turkey detains several over Ghosn's transit through Istanbul - NTV

ISTANBUL, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Turkish police have detained several people after the interior ministry launched a probe into the transit of ousted Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn, who after fleeing Japan stopped in Turkey on his way to Lebanon, broadcaster NTV said on Thursday.

Ghosn, one of the world's best-known executives, has become Japan's most famous fugitive after he revealed on Tuesday he had fled to Lebanon to escape what he called a "rigged" justice system. (Reporting by Daren Butler; Editing by Jonathan Spicer)
