Turkey Shutters Kurdish Children's TV Channel

  • Dorian Jones

As Turkey remains under emergency rule after July’s failed coup attempt, numerous Kurdish TV and radio stations have been shut down - accused of supporting the Kurdish separatist group, PKK. But the closure of Zarok TV, a children’s channel, has raised concerns that the target has more to do with the Kurdish language than terrorism. Dorian Jones reports from Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s predominantly Kurdish region and home to Zarok TV.
