World - Turkey hatching plan to clear Syrian beggars off Istanbul streets


By Dasha Afanasieva and Seda Sezer ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Authorities in Istanbul are working on plans to clear the streets of Syrian beggars and house them in camps like those on the border, as Turkey struggles with an influx of over a million refugees and the hospitality of locals starts to wear thin. Beggars have become increasingly visible in Istanbul, many of them Syrians displaced by their country`s three-year war, including women and young children, passports in outstretched hands, tapping on car windows in the city`s dense traffic. They represent a tiny fraction of the Syrians sheltering in Turkey, some housed in well-equipped camps along the border, others living with friends or family or in modest rented accommodation in cities in the southeast, Ankara or Istanbul. If they don`t give up begging we will take an administrative decision and send them to a camp,` the city`s governor, Huseyin Avni Mutlu, told Reuters.

World - Turkey arrests more than 50 senior police officers


Turkish authorities on Tuesday arrested 55 senior police officers in a criminal probe over alleged corruption and abuse of office, the latest apparent crackdown on opponents of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan ahead of presidential polls. Forty serving and former top police officers were arrested in Istanbul, including the former head of the anti-terrorism unit of Istanbul police, Omer Kose, television reports said. Fifteen others were arrested elsewhere, in what the reports said was a new sweep against the movement of Erdogan`s former ally Fethullah Gulen in the wake of a vast corruption scandal implicating the prime minister and his inner circle. In the huge operation conducted in the early morning, police in Istanbul alone raided almost 200 addresses.

World - Israel cuts diplomatic presence in Turkey amid protests


By Can Sezer and Dan Williams ISTANBUL/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel said on Friday it was reducing its diplomatic presence in Turkey after protesters angered by its ground offensive into Gaza pelted its consulate in Istanbul with stones and draped Palestinian flags on the ambassador`s residence in Ankara. The Israeli foreign ministry accused Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan of `incitement`, saying it was ordering the return of diplomats` families and trimming staffing to a minimum. `(Israel) has always been oppressive, and continues to oppress. Hence, as Turkey, I cannot think of positive developments with Israel as long as I hold this duty,` Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul, shortly before he was due to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

World - Turkey warns of `drastic measures` against Syrian refugees


Turkey will take `drastic measures` to deal with the influx of tens of thousands of Syrian refugees into its biggest city Istanbul, including forcibly sending them to camps in the southeast, the city`s top official said Wednesday. Istanbul governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu said there were now 67,000 Syrian refugees in the city and legislation would now be adopted that could see them effectively expelled from the city of 15 million to refugee camps closer to Syria. Mutlu said authorities would take `drastic measures` to contain the negative consequences of Syrian refugees in Istanbul, including sending those begging in the streets back to the refugee camps `without their consent`.

World - Dozens of Turkish police detained for alleged spying on government


By Daren Butler ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Dozens of police including high-ranking officers were detained in Turkey on Tuesday, accused of spying and illegal wire-tapping of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his inner circle in what the chief prosecutor said was a concocted probe of an alleged terrorist group. The former Istanbul anti-terror police chief, himself among those detained and led away in handcuffs, said the incident was entirely political, coming just a few weeks ahead of a presidential election in which Erdogan is standing. Police conducted raids in 22 provinces, and officers involved in a separate government corruption probe which emerged in December and led to the departure of four ministers were among those detained, Turkish media reported. The officers were accused of making up an investigation into an alleged terrorist group named `selam-tevhid` as a pretence to tap the phones of Erdogan, ministers and the head of the national intelligence agency.

World - Israel advises citizens to avoid Turkey amid Gaza protests


Israel advised its citizens on Saturday not to travel to Turkey, citing `the public mood` after heated protests there against Israel`s ground offensive into Gaza. The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem said Israelis should `avoid non-essential visits` to Turkey - once Israel`s closest regional ally - or be especially vigilant and steer clear of anti-Israel demonstrations.

Israel said on Friday it would pare back already an reduced staff at its embassy in Ankara and consulate in Istanbul, scenes of furious street protests at Israel`s escalation of its Gaza offensive into a ground invasion.
