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 - Istanbul residents in violent protest over Syrian refugees: reports

Hundreds of Istanbul residents angered by the presence of Syrian refugees clashed with police early Monday in a violent protest in a suburb of Turkey`s biggest city, reports said. The clashes were the latest violence amid growing tensions between Turkish locals and Syrian refugees who fled the civil war in their country and whose numbers in Turkey have now swelled to 1.2 million. The protest in the Ikitelli district in the east of the European side of Istanbul was sparked by claims that young Syrian men had sexually harassed a teenage girl, the Dogan news agency reported. The CNN-Turk news channel said five Syrian women were injured in the protest.

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.

World - Sanchez strike sends 10-man Arsenal through

Alexis Sanchez`s first Arsenal goal earned his side a nervy 1-0 victory over Besiktas on Wednesday that saw them squeeze into the Champions League for the 17th consecutive season. The Chilean, Arsenal`s number 17, repaid the first instalment of his £30 million ($50.4 million, 37.6 million euros) transfer fee by tucking away a low shot in first-half stoppage time, but the hosts` inability to kill the game off made for a night of nail-biting tension at the Emirates Stadium. Mathieu Debuchy`s dismissal for two yellow cards meant that Arsenal saw out the last 15 minutes with 10 men, but although a solitary goal would have been enough to send the Turkish side through after last week`s goalless draw in Istanbul, the hosts held on for a 1-0 aggregate win. Arsene Wenger`s side, who lost to Bayern Munich in the last 16 last season, will discover the identities of their group-phase opponents in Thursday`s draw.

World - Russia allows dairy imports from Turkish firms after Western food ban

Russia has allowed dairy supplies from three Turkish firms, its veterinary and phytosanitary service (VPSS) said, boosting imports after Moscow banned most foods from the European Union and the United States. Shares in one of the Turkish companies, dairy company Pinar Sut, surged 7.9 percent to 1.6 lira in Istanbul on the news, which was a first tangible sign of Turkey benefiting from the import bans. Russia banned food imports worth about $9 billion from EU, the U.S., Canada, Australia and Norway in early August in response to trade sanctions over its role in the Ukraine crisis. Turkey and Latin American countries such as Brazil have looked likely to emerge as key winners from Kremlin`s one-year ban on dairy, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.
