Turkey ‘charges two editors’ over claims Ankara supplied arms

Turkey

Istanbul: A court in Istanbul today charged two journalists from the opposition Cumhuriyet daily with spying for publishing an article which claimed that Turkey’s secret services had sent arms to Islamist rebels in Syria, Turkish media reported.

Editor-in-chief Can Dundar and Erdem Gul, the paper’s Ankara bureau chief, stand accused of spying and “divulging state secrets”, the reports said. Both men were taken into custody.
