Turkey jails two journalists over claims Ankara supplied arms to Syrian jihadis

Turkish authorities have arrested two prominent reporters on charges of assisting terrorism. They had published video footage online that allegedly tied the country's state intelligence agency to Islamists in Syria.

In May 2015, the two journalists had published a video on the newspaper's website dating back to January 2014 that allegedly showed Turkish police open Syria-bound crates of weapons and ammunition on trucks belonging to Turkey's intelligence agency, MIT.

Dündar, 54, the newspaper's editor-in-chief and a well-known veteran journalist in Turkey, and Gül, the paper's Ankara bureau chief, have both been taken into custody, as social media users across Turkey voiced their criticism at the recently-elected government's tough stance on journalists.

Thanks for posting this Cin I saw it about an hour ago and haven't had a chance to start a thread. 

 

I I can see something like this happen in soon here when big O gets his way. Or even if a Dem gets in for pres next year. We are living in scary times right now. These journalist were charged with espionage when they were just reporting. Here in the west we still have the first amendment however Facebook and other social media sites are restricting our rights. Finally took the plunge and I am now Facebook free.
