Erdogan emails: Turkey blocks access to WikiLeaks after release of 300,000 secret government emails

The Telecommunications Communications Board, Turkey’s Internet watchdog, said it had taken an “administrative measure” against the website – a term it commonly uses when blocking access to sites.

As many as 294,548 emails regarding Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AKP Party were published in response to the Ankara government’s widespread post-coup purges, despite an orchestrated cyberattack on the WikiLeaks website.
