Erdogan Attacks 'Parallel State's Blackmail Tapes'


Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday attacked those behind recent leaks as being a "parallel state," and in doing so revealed they hold numerous recordings of key officials in Erdogan's government - including of himself. Erdogan warned 'we will clear the state of these assassins.'

Erdogan temporarily blocked the social media site Twitter in late March after leaks surfaced on the internet implicating Erdogan's inner circle of corruption.
