The British edition of Turkey’s leading opposition newspaper, Zaman, ceased publishing and its staff have removed the newspaper’s sign outside its offices in Highbury, north London, as a precaution against attacks.

Omer Yalcinkaya, the managing director of the journal, also said that businesses had become too anxious to advertise in its pages. The government had previously shut down Zaman’s head office in Turkey and issued arrest warrants for 47 of its journalists.
