Turkish authorities have issued arrest warrants for 42 journalists as part of the investigation into the failed coup aimed at toppling President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, television news channels said Monday.
Among those targeted by the warrants were prominent journalist Nazli Ilicak who was fired from the pro-government Sabah daily in 2013 for criticizing ministers caught up in a corruption scandal, NTV and CNN-Turk said.
There was no indication any of the journalists had been detained so far.
