"Erdogan greets his referendum victory," read a headline on Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television. 

The Saudi-funded Al-Arabiya news channel said "Erdogan will chair cabinet meetings in first implementation of constitutional reforms". 

"Turkish referendum: Is it a second republic?" headlined the London-based Al-Araby Al-Jadeed newspaper. 

Lebanese daily An-Nahar said "Yes camp is winner of referendum". Another headline said "Erdogan: It is a historic victory". 

Egypt's Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper headlined "Erdogan amasses more power in Turkey".
