Turkey court blocks websites featuring Charlie Hebdo cover: media

ANKARA (AFP) - A Turkish court on Wednesday decided to block access to websites featuring the cover of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, state-run news agency Anatolia reported.

"It has been decided that access to relevant sections of Internet sites that air Charlie Hebdo's cover today will be banned," it said.

Defying an attack a week ago by Islamist gunmen who shot dead many of its staff, Charlie Hebdo's first post-attack edition Wednesday pictures a tearful Prophet Muhammad on its cover holding a sign saying "Je suis Charlie" ("I am Charlie").
