Default Turkey arrests head of opposition newspaper: report

Turkey detained on Friday the head of the board of opposition daily Cumhuriyet, said the newspaper, which has been the target of an intensifying crackdown since July's failed coup. Akin Atalay was taken into custody at Istanbul's airport after arriving from Germany, said Cumhuriyet, which also saw nine of its staff arrested last week. The paper has in recent years taken a strong line against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP).
