World - Impatience grows in Turkey over Syrian `guests`

Cengiz, a street seller who plies his trade selling bread rings in the centre of Istanbul, is usually a fervent supporter of Turkey`s newly-elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan has maintained an `open door` policy for all those fleeing Syria`s civil war, with the result that there are now some 1.2 million Syrian refugees living in the country. It is these refugees who have become the source of an upsurge in tensions in Turkey, where local authorities appear to have been initially poorly prepared for the huge influx. The refugees have become an increasingly visible presence in cities including Istanbul, with entire families huddled together on carpets and begging in the middle of the pavement in the city centre.

World - Turkish President casts self as heir to reformer who died on gallows

By Ayla Jean Yackley ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Whether stirring crowds with fiery election speeches or, as on Thursday, swearing an oath as Turkey`s first popularly elected president, Tayyip Erdogan casts himself as the heir of one man above all others - a man whose life ended on an army gallows. On the forsaken island of Yassiada off the shores of Istanbul, a military tribunal sentenced to death Adnan Menderes, Turkey`s most popular prime minister by share of vote, a year after a 1960 coup that would set the stage for military interventions lasting another two generations. He is in our hearts.` To Erdogan`s supporters his inauguration is the culmination of a half-century struggle by popular governments against unelected generals and other parts of the secular elite who saw themselves as the true keepers of Turkey`s republican values. It is a schism in Turkish society reaching back to the 1920s when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk forged a secular republic from the ruins of an Ottoman theocracy, banishing Islam from public life.

World - Turkey struggles as `lone gatekeeper` against Islamic State recruitment

By Nick Tattersall and Mariam Karouny ISTANBUL/BEIRUT (Reuters) - As Islamic State insurgents threaten the Turkish border from Syria, Turkey is struggling to staunch the flow of foreign jihadists to the militant group, having not so long ago allowed free access to those who would join its neighbor`s civil war. Thousands of foreign fighters from countries including Turkey, Britain, parts of Europe and the United States are believed to have joined the Islamist militants in their self-proclaimed caliphate, carved out of eastern Syria and western Iraq, according to diplomats and Turkish officials. The militants, who seized an air base in northeast Syria on Sunday as they surge northwards, are trying to secure control of the area bordering Turkey above the city of Raqqa, their major stronghold, in a bid to further ease the passage of foreign fighters and supplies, sources close to Islamic State said. Some of the foreign fighters in their midst reached Syria via Turkey, entering the region on flights to Istanbul or Turkey`s Mediterranean resorts, their Western passports giving them cover among the millions of tourists arriving each month in one of the world`s most visited countries.

World - Turkey detains dozens of police in new swoop against Erdogan foes

Turkish authorities on Monday detained some two dozen police officers in new nationwide raids over an alleged plot to overthrow the Islamic-rooted government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Police conducted early morning raids in 16 cities across Turkey, including Istanbul as well as the western province of Izmir, and detained at least 20 police officers, private NTV television reported. It was the fourth such wave of raids since July as the government cracks down on what Erdogan has described as a `parallel state` within the security forces seeking to topple his government. Since July, dozens of police officers have been arrested and placed in custody on suspicion of forming a criminal organisation and wire-tapping hundreds of people including Erdogan.

World - `Recruiter` for Syrian jihad arrested in France

A 22-year-old man suspected of acting as a recruiter for jihadist groups in Syria has been arrested at an airport in the south of France, the interior ministry said Sunday. The man, who is said to be of Chechen origin, was stopped at the Nice airport on Saturday and taken into custody. He is suspected of having paid in cash for a 16-year-old girl to fly to Turkey with the intention of then crossing the border to Syria, a statement by Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said. Unconvinced by the girl`s explanation that she was planning on visiting her grandmother in Istanbul, Turkish Airlines contacted French border police, who then called the security services.

World - Erdogan: Turkey`s new Sultan with eye on history

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was sworn in as Turkey`s president Thursday, climbed from a humble youth in Istanbul to become one of the most significant but controversial leaders in the Islamic world. Erdogan, who served as premier since 2003, is lauded by his supporters as a transformative figure who modernised Turkey and delivered power back to the people from the secular and military elite. There is no doubt that Erdogan has his eye on history and wants to be ranked alongside Turkey`s post-Ottoman founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk as one of its great transformative figures. Should he serve two five-year terms as president, he will be ruling Turkey in 2023 when the country celebrates the 100th anniversary of its founding by Ataturk.
