ANKARA, April 18 Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan
applied to Turkey's constitutional court on Friday to challenge
the alleged violation of his and his family's rights by social
media, broadcaster CNN Turk and other media said.
His government blocked Twitter and YouTube
in March, drawing international condemnation, after
audio recordings, purportedly showing corruption in his inner
circle, were leaked on their sites. YouTube remains blocked.
Friday's media reports could not immediately be confirmed.
