The Anadolu Agency reported that the media ban was in response to a request by the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office. The ban includes news concerning witnesses, victims or suspects in the murder. The ruling said such news could be prejudicial to the investigation and to national security. The ban will last for the duration of the investigation. Russian officials say it is too early to comment on the investigation and the Ankara court’s decision.
