ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey has warned online encyclopedia Wikipedia, blocked by Ankara two weeks ago, over what it says is content creating a perception that Turkey is supporting terrorist organisations, Turkish Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan said on Thursday.
Turkey's telecommunications watchdog said two weeks ago that access to Wikipedia had been blocked, citing a law allowing it to ban access to websites deemed a threat to national security.
Speaking to broadcaster NTV, Arslan demanded Wikipedia open a representative office in Turkey and be eligible to pay tax.
