A media limitation, decided by a local prosecutor, has been introduced by the regulatory board of Turkish broadcasters, the Supreme Board of Radio and Television (RTÜK), regarding the blasts in the southern province of Hatay’s Reyhanlı district.
Following the demand of the Reyhanlı public prosecutor, a written statement from RTÜK declared that the Reyhanlı Court of Peace had ruled that all kinds of voice, written and visual publications about the scenes of incidents after the blasts were banned, including content and images of the injured and the dead.
