A heart-shaped balloons with the portrait of German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yucel is pictured ahead of a otorcade protest on February 14, 2018 in Berlin, on the day of Yucel's first full year in custody in Turkey without charge. Yucel gave himself up to police on February 14, 2017 after initially taking refuge inside a German diplomatic compound in Istanbul when media reported an arrest warrant had been issued against him. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim expressed hope February 14, 2018 ahead of key talks in Berlin that German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yucel would soon be freed after spending one year behind bars. / AFP PHOTO / dpa / Kay Nietfeld / Germany OUT (Photo credit should read KAY NIETFELD/AFP/Getty Images)
