Turkey blocks access to WikiLeaks after ruling party email dump
Turkey’s Telecommunications Communications Board said an ‘administrative measure’ had been taken against the website
Turkey's Internet watchdog has blocked access to the WikiLeaks website in Turkey, it said, after the whistleblower organization released nearly 300,000 emails from the ruling AK Party.
The Telecommunications Communications Board said on Wednesday that an "administrative measure" had been taken against the website - the term it commonly uses when blocking access to sites.
WikiLeaks said on Monday it was planning to release documents on Turkey's political power structure after a failed coup attempt over the weekend.
"Get ready for a fight as we release 100k+ docs on Turkey's political power structure," WikiLeaks said on its Twitter feed.
