More Ergenekon Arrests in Turkey
There has been another wave of Ergenekon arrests in Turkey. 20 people have been arrested, including military officials. This time the Turkish government is claiming the arrests have some connection to "the killing of three Christian missionaries in the southeastern city of Malatya in 2007". Is this some crazed attempt at winning Western support for the crackdown by trying to link the mythical Ergenekon plot to attacks on Christians?
