World - Turkish court orders arrest of 12 more police officers in wiretap probe


By Ayla Jean Yackley ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish court on Saturday ordered the formal arrest of 12 more police officers, including the former head of Istanbul`s intelligence unit, pending charges they may have illegally wiretapped Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, media said. The detention of 115 police officers in overnight raids earlier this week ratcheted up a power struggle between Erdogan and his erstwhile ally, Fethullah Gulen, an influential Islamic scholar based in Pennsylvania, whose followers took up key posts in the police and judiciary during Erdogan`s 11 years in power. Fuat Ali Yilmazer, who oversaw intelligence for Istanbul police and is accused of forming and leading a criminal gang, was among those formally arrested, CNN Turk reported. He has accused them of a litany of crimes, including organizing 2013 mass anti-government protests and using the corruption charges in an attempt topple him in a coup.

World - Turkey`s Erdogan trumpets high-speed rail link as election looms


By Daren Butler ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan inaugurated a $4 billion high-speed train link between Istanbul and Ankara on Friday, the latest in a series of `mega projects` he hopes will help him win a presidential election in a few weeks time. Turkey`s economic development - driven partly by major infrastructure projects - has been the foundation of Erdogan`s popularity despite deepening discontent among his opponents at what they see as growing authoritarianism. The launch - which comes just over three weeks ahead of the presidential election but a year before the line will be fully operational as it currently runs only to the outskirts of Istanbul - was delayed by a few months due to what officials described as sabotage and a test train crash on July 3.

World - Erdogan suffers delay on new Turkey high speed train


Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday inaugurated the first high-speed train link between Ankara and Istanbul in his latest ambitious grand engineering project, but arrived late after a technical problem on the maiden trip. Erdogan boasted that the new high speed train link was a symbol of a new Turkey but promptly himself suffered an all too familiar commuter experience when the train made an unscheduled halt for half an hour. The new line between Turkey`s two biggest cities, which should slash journey times by around a half to 3.5 hours, has already been hit by repeatedly delayed opening dates and accidents. The line does not yet terminate in the centre of Istanbul, but on the Asian side of the Bosphorus in the suburb of Pendik, which can take up to two hours to access from the heart of the city.

World - Iraqi Kurdish pipeline stopped; tanker in limbo off Texas


By Humeyra Pamuk and David Sheppard ISTANBUL/LONDON (Reuters) - Iraqi Kurdistan`s attempts to export oil independently of Baghdad hit another obstacle on Wednesday, as a Turkish energy official and industry sources said the autonomous region`s pipeline to the Mediterranean has been shut for the past week. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has not launched any oil tankers from the Turkish port of Ceyhan in over a month as Baghdad has moved to block the vessels from unloading at foreign ports. The latest set-back comes as Iraqi Kurdistan`s increasingly bitter legal and diplomatic struggle with Baghdad over oil sales threatens to spill over into the United States.
