Ahval censored in Turkey

Turkey blocked access to the Ahval news website late on Wednesday in a decision by the Information and Communication Technologies Authority, a division of the Ministry for Transportation, Maritime Affairs, and Communication.

No reason has yet been given for the decision, which Ahval is planning to appeal in the courts.

Users in Turkey can still access Ahval news content using virtual private network (VPN) services, which send data via a computer or server in another country.

Ahval, established in November 2017, is an independent news portal with a focus on news from and relating to Turkey.
