A Turkish court Tuesday released two Greek soldiers pending their trial on espionage charges, according to state-run news agency Anadolu.

The cased has ignited tensions between the NATO allies.

Greece said the soldiers crossed into Turkey by mistake while following the trail of suspected illegal migrants.

Turkish courts ordered their detention in March on suspicion of illegal entry and attempted military espionage.
