Turkish police storm offices of opposition media group

Police are seen arriving to the Koza-Ipek Holding building in Ankara in September 2015, after staging a major swoop on the offices of the media group critical of President Recep Tayyip ErdoganThe action triggered widespread concern about media freedom in Turkey, with critics accusing the government of trying to silence opponents of Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) ahead of Sunday’s vote. Police in riot helmets moved in after a controversial court ruling ordered the seizure of the Kozi-Ipek conglomerate linked to US-exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, the one-time Erdogan ally now regarded as his nemesis. Several arrests were made, including a reporter from Bugun TV, the private NTV television channel reported.
