    The EU parliament has protested against the arrest of several journalists in Turkey. Freedom of the press has also taken a blow with increased censorship and self-censorship.The Turkish authorities accuse the journalists of belonging to the Ergenekon group, an organization of military and civilian persons suspected of having planned a coup against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But at least two of the journalists are considered definite opponents of the coup. Their arrest may be the result of criticisms they leveled against the Turkish police.
