White House hits Turkey over vote 'intimidation'

AFP , Monday 2 Nov 2015

The White House on Monday voiced its displeasure at the "intimidation" of Turkish journalists during an election that bolstered the already strong hand of its longtime President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Just weeks before President Barack Obama meets Erdogan in Turkey, spokesman Josh Earnest said the White House was "deeply concerned that media outlets and individual journalists critical of the government were subject to pressure and intimidation during the campaign."
