Turkish dailies, on Thursday, covered the funeral of Turkish folk music singer Neset Ertas, developments after the terrorist attack in the eastern Tunceli province, and a Turkish court's decision for the removal of video content of infamous anti-Islam movie in Turkey. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
All newspapers wrote the funeral of folk music singer Neset Ertas. Loved by millions of music fans, Ertas passed away at the age of 74 in the western Izmir province due to cancer he had fought for the past two years. The funeral took place for Ertas at the Ahi Evran Mosque in central Anatolian province of Kirsehir on Wednesday. The funeral was attended by hundreds of people. Among those attending the funeral was Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Chairman of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Kemal Kilicdaroglu, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay and Chief Judge of the Turkish Constitutional Court Hasim Kilic. Ertas was laid to eternal rest in central Anatolian province of Kirsehir where he was born. All dailies covered their first page with Turkey's bidding farewell to Ertas.
Another topic in all newspapers is the terrorist ambush in Tunceli province which killed six soldiers and a civilian. PKK, who targeted a military vehicle, detonated the bomb they had earlier planted two km out of the city center while the vehicle was passing by, killing two specialized sergeants, four privates and a civilian. While the dailies covered the result of operations backed by helicopters in the region following the attack, daily VATAN wrote that General of 4th Commando Brigade Metin Akkaya was the target of the attack.
The newspapers also wrote a criminal court's decision in Ankara for the removal of video content of infamous anti-Islam movie "Innocence of Muslims" on specified URLs.
The court stated that the movie was a threat for the world peace.
