Journalists go on trial over Turkey coup bid

Prominent journalists were among 17 people who went on trial in Istanbul on Minday on charges of links to the group allegedly behind last year's failed coup, in a case that has amplified concerns over press freedom in Turkey. The trial is the first to include journalists arrested in connection with the July 15 coup under the state of emergency imposed. More cases will go to court.
