Participants shout slogans and hold the latest copy of Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet outside its office in Ankara on October 31, 2016, during a protest against the detention of the editor-in-chief and a dozen journalists and executives.
Turkish police on October 31 detained Murat Sabuncu, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper -- a thorn in the side of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan -- as Ankara widens a crackdown on opposition media. The newspaper, which had published revelations embarrassing for the government, said at least a dozen journalists and executives were detained in early morning raids. The detentions come after Turkish authorities fired more than 10,000 civil servants at the weekend and closed 15 pro-Kurdish and other media outlets, the latest purge since July's failed military coup. / AFP / ADEM ALTAN (Photo credit should read ADEM ALTAN/AFP/Getty Images)
