  • Turkey's Erdogan criticizes foreign diplomats for attending journalists' trial

    "The consul-generals in Istanbul attended the trial. Who are you? What business do you have there? Diplomacy has a certain propriety and manners. This is not your country. This is Turkey," he told a meeting of businessmen in Istanbul.

    Turkey's Erdogan warns foreign diplomat over 'selfie' at journalist trial

    Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan warned a foreign diplomat on Monday over a "selfie" taken at the espionage trial of two journalists, after Britain's consul-general tweeted a photo of himself with one of the reporters.

    Erdogan has harshly criticized Western diplomats after several showed up on Friday to support Can Dundar, editor-in-chief of the Cumhuriyet newspaper, and his colleague Erdem Gul on the first day of their trial in Istanbul.

    The journalists are accused of trying to topple the government with the publication of a video purporting to show Turkey's state intelligence agency helping to ferry weapons into Syria by truck in 2014. The two face life imprisonment and their case has brought international condemnation and raised concerns about freedom of the press in Turkey.
