Phys.org: Turkish court rejects Wikipedia appeal on ban

Phys.org: Turkish court rejects Wikipedia appeal on ban . “A Turkish court has rejected an appeal filed by Wikipedia against a ban in Turkey on its website. Turkish authorities blocked access to the free online encyclopedia on April 29, on grounds that it was “acting with groups conducting a smear campaign against Turkey.” Turkish media reports said a court in Ankara ordered the ban after Wikipedia refused to remove two pages that claimed that Turkey provided support to jihadis in Syria.”
