Turkish media linked to exiled cleric say they shut out by government

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish media close to a U.S.-based Islamic preacher accused by President Tayyip Erdogan of seeking to usurp power say they have been shut out of government press events in a move they see as evidence of Turkey's deteriorating press freedoms. Correspondents from the Zaman and Bugun newspapers, the Samanyolu TV station and Cihan news agency say they have been banned from the presidential palace since Erdogan's inauguration in August and no longer receive official press releases. Erdogan, whose ruling AK Party has roots in political Islam, accuses preacher Fethullah Gulen of building a "parallel state" of followers in institutions including the police and judiciary in a bid to seize the levers of state power. #Politics #United States #France #climate change #Russia #Government #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Kenyans march against attacks on women over mini-skirts

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Nearly 1,000 people took to the streets of Nairobi on Monday to protest against a series of vicious public attacks on women who were stripped naked and assaulted for wearing mini-skirts or other clothing perceived to be immodest. Grainy videos of two attacks in Mombasa and Nairobi, taken on cellphones and circulated widely via Twitter and other social media, show mobs of men surrounding the women, wresting off their clothes and appearing to kick them in their genital area. #Politics #facebook #United States #India #Technology #France #climate change #Arabic #United Kingdom #opinion
