Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has called for a parliamentary investigation into a plane crash that killed 57 people on board in 2007 in Isparta -- including six scientists who were working on a nuclear energy project. “This big project had the potential to make Turkey an energy giant in the near future, as the county has rich thorium reserves,” the CHP's motion said.
A former district governor who got removed from his post for insulting a local was promoted to deputy governor of Bilecik. The local that the former district governor insulted was protesting the expropriation of their land.
AKP deputy Recep Özel wrote on Twitter that 245 of 268 coronavirus patients in Turkey's western province of Isparta were pilgrims who were placed in the province's student dormitories as part of quarantine measures. Just minutes later, Özel deleted his tweets.
