A court in Turkey has ordered a block on websites carrying the cover of the first issue of Charlie Hebdo to come out of last week's Islamic attack on the French magazine. The cover shows the prophet Muhammad mourning the 12 victims, but the judge describes it as criminal and blasphemous. The staunch secular newspaper Cumhuriyet Daily has published a four-page to selection of material, the paper's editor Utku Cakirozer defended his decision. “We prepared the selection of these cartoons and decided to publish it on the same day the latest edition went on sale. We did this merely to show our support for freedom of expression. We did this to give the message that freedom of expression should be maintained and that shouldnt be precluded by terror.”
