Wikipedia blocked in Turkey

A block affecting all language editions of the website detected at 8:00AM local time Saturday 29 April. The loss of availability is consistent with internet filters used to censor content in the country.

Certain subdomains remained partially available on ISP TTNet at the time of writing, while the restriction appears to by fully implemented on Uydunet, Turkcell and other fixed line and mobile service providers.

All language editions of the site are affected and the restriction is in place with multiple service providers.

The BTK/ICTA portal reports that the site has been blocked under a provisional administrative order.


Apparently Erdogan doesn't believe in facts.
