TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON FEB 4

Turkish dailies on Monday covered the statements of Turkey's ruling party's (AK Party) leader about the EU accession process, a missing US woman who became the subject of a large-scale search following her death and the suicide bomb attack in northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most of the Turkish dailies covered the statements of Prime Minister and ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "Come to an agreement or not" headlined daily YENI SAFAK over Erdogan's words. Turkish Premier Erdogan referred to Turkey's 50 years long wait for its EU accession and said, "There is no other country who has waited for 50 years. We are going to talk openly in our Brussels visit. If you are going to do it, do so if not tell it. If EU expects us to say 'we are walking out of this' we sure will consider it" according to the daily.

Most of the Turkish dailies covered the murder of the missing American woman, Sarai Sierra who had disappeared on January 21 in Istanbul. "Mystery of murder hidden in tablet" headlined daily HURRIYET referring to Sierra's missing tablet computer while the gold jewellery she wore was untouched. Police confirm that Sierra was killed with a single hit to the head and they are awaiting her e-mail records from USA to see who was last contacted.

Lastly, some of the Turkish dailies covered the suicide bomb attack outside a police headquarters in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Sunday. "Bombing in Kirkuk, again" headlined daily MILLIYET over the third major attack in weeks which killed 33 people and left 70 injured. The attackers painted the car to look like a police car and was therefore unrecognized until the blast.
