Turkey bans alcohol advertising, curbs liquor sales
ANKARA (REUTERS) - Turkey banned alcohol advertising and increased restrictions on alcohol sales on Friday in a move likely to anger secularist Turks who accuse the government of having an Islamic agenda.
The sale of alcohol will be outlawed from 10 pm to 6 am.
Alcohol producers will have to place health warnings on packaging.
The law, which needs presidential approval before coming into effect, also bans alcohol-producing companies from sponsoring events and venues where alcohol is sold and consumed can no longer openly display drinks.
