Turkey's parliament has approved a law giving the government more power over the council that appoints and oversees judges and prosecutors.
The opposition said the law will limit the judiciary's independence. The bill still needs the president's signature to become law.
Parliament passed the bill during an overnight session that sparked a brawl in which two lawmakers were injured.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government proposed the bill as it fights a corruption scandal that implicated people close to him.
The main opposition party (CHP) has said it would appeal the law if parliament approved it.
