Turkish President Recep Tayiip Erdogan attacked another free and independent newspaper in Turkey as Erdogan continues his struggle against newspapers affiliated with the Turkish Opposition.

The Sheehan newspaper announced last night that the government took control of the newspaper due to a court order and the government is soon expected to appoint an administrator who will work on behalf of the authorities. The newspaper raided the newspaper for being critical of Erdogan a few days after the Zaman Newspaper was taken over.
