Turkey email leak case

Turkey blocks web drives after email leak

The Turkish government imposed the blocks after a hacktivist group leaked emails it said it had stolen from the nation's energy minister.

The Redhack group had threatened to publish the information unless left-wing dissidents were released.

In total, more than 57,000 emails were put online by the group.
