Turkey blocks access to WikiLeaks after ‘AKP emails’ dump

Turkey's Internet watchdog has blocked access to the WikiLeaks website in Turkey, it said, after the whistleblower organization released nearly 300,000 emails, claimed to belong to the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). 

The Telecommunications Communications Board (TİB) said on July 20 that an "administrative measure" had been taken against the website - the term it commonly uses when blocking access to sites.
