BERLIN — A German-Turkish journalist whose detention had proven an irritant in relations between Berlin and Ankara was released on Friday from the Turkish prison where he had been detained for the past year, just hours after he was formally charged with spreading terrorism-related propaganda.

At the same time, the state-run Anadolu news agency said that three prominent Turkish journalists were among six people who were sentenced to life in prison. All had been accused of involvement in the failed 2016 coup and of having links to Fethullah Gulen, a cleric in the United States who Turkey says organized the effort to overthrow the government.

The release of Deniz Yucel, a reporter for Die Welt, came a day after Chancellor Angela Merkel met with Prime Minister Binali Yildirim of Turkey to press for his freedom.
