Turkey imposes media ban after bombing

A partial ban on media publicizing information related to Tuesday's bombing in Istanbul has been imposed by a Turkish court, the broadcasting authority (RTUK) reports.

Such bans, common after attacks in the country's main cities, normally prohibit broadcasting unofficial information, including that about ongoing investigations, and some images from the scenes of the attacks.
