Turkish dailies on Friday covered the statements of the Turkish ruling party's (AKP) leader about the governors across the country and their efforts to solve the Kurdish issue, the case of a missing US women who became the subject of a large-scale search and the story of a Russian boy who was cared for by a Turkish lady. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Most of the Turkish dailies covered the statements of the Prime Minister and President of the ruling Development and Justice Party (AKP) Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "No sitting back and not doing anything in the governorship anymore" headlined daily SABAH after Erdogan's words. Turkish Premier Erdogan referred to the role of governors in fighting against terrorism and said that governors from 81 Turkish cities do not represent the "iron fist" of the state anymore and that they have an important duty in Turkey's fight against terrorism. Daily SABAH stated that Erdogan had sent messages to governors and quoted Erdogan as saying, "Represent the people in their provinces, do not represent the bureaucracy. No sitting back anymore, we have lots more to do. You can call me 24 hours a day and I will too. Governors who represented the "Iron fist" of the state are gone now."
Most of the Turkish dailies covered the missing American woman, Sarai Sierra. Daily VATAN stated, Turkish police received a signal from her mobile phone which gave hopes to the family of Sierra. Sierra disappeared on January 21 in Istanbul. There is a large-scale ongoing search to find her and track if she is still alive. Police went through CCTV images and Sierra's e-mails to find any clues in the hope of finding what had happened to Sierra.
Lastly, some of the Turkish dailies covered the story of Gulsum Kabadayi who has been looking after a Russian boy. Turkish lady Kabadayi has been taking care of a Russian boy who remained paralyzed after he was hit by a bus in Antalya in 2008. Kabadayı found the Russian boy unconscious and began nursing him voluntarily. Later she took him to her house and named him "Umut", meaning "Hope." After her appearance on a Russian talk show, several women from Russia claimed to be the actual mother of Umut. Now Kabadayi does not want to give Umut to his real mother until the DNA results are revealed.
