Wikileaks blocked in Turkey after dumping ruling party emails

Wikileaks' website has been blocked in Turkey, after the whistle-blower platform released nearly 300,000 emails from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

There have so far been no shocking revelations from the emails, which date back to 2010. Wikileaks says the cache was not provided by coup plotters and the organization does not support the failed coup attempt.

Turkey blocks tens of thousands of websites.
