Also in Izmir, state-run Anatolia news agency reported that police had
arrested 25 people for tweeting "misinformation".

 

An official from the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), Ali Engin,
told Anatolia they were being held for "calling on people to protest".

 

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that Twitter was a
"menace" being used to spread "lies".
