Turkey’s Erdogan criticises foreign diplomats for attending journalists’ trial

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday harshly criticised foreign diplomats in Turkey for attending the trial of two prominent journalists charged with espionage, saying their behaviour was not in line with diplomatic protocol. The first hearing of Can Dundar, editor-in-chief of Cumhuriyet, and Erdem Gul, 49, head of the newspaper’s Ankara bureau, took place on Friday in a courtroom packed with journalists, academics, and half a dozen foreign diplomats, mainly European, in a case that drew international criticism.
