Cumhuriyet journalist Can Dündar has escaped unharmed from an armed attack in front of the Istanbul Çağlayan courthouse following the fourth hearing of a case due to stories published about Turkish intelligence trucks bound for Syria with hidden weapons in early 2014.
The assailant was detained while Dündar was uninjured. “It was directly against me, I saw the assailant” Dündar said.
NTV reporter Yağız Şenkal, however, was wounded in the leg. The assailant fired two shots, shouting, “You are a traitor” according to initial reports.
