Turkish government bans Twitter (again) to prevent distribution of Monday’s suicide bombing images

The Turkish government has - once again - blocked access to Twitter to prevent the spreading of images of Monday's bombing in southeast Turkey that killed at least 32 people.

Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency said the government was also trying to block Twitter users from calling for protests against the government following the tragic incident.

Local prosecutors called for the ban, which is being enforced by service providers.
