Turkey imposes broadcast ban on Ankara bomb blast

MEMO | October 10, 2015

Turkey has imposed a temporary ban on showing images of Saturday’s bomb attack in Ankara for reasons of “public security”.

The ban also includes images of the aftermath of attack on a peace protest outside the city’s main train station.

The Supreme Board of Radio and Television said the prime minister’s office decided to impose the ban.

In a written statement, the board said the ban was imposed due to “security reasons” and “public security”. Such bans are usually put in place to prevent the spread of what the government refers to as terrorist propaganda.

Broadcasters can still cover statements about the twin blasts and air commentary.
