TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON JAN 28

Turkish dailies on Monday covered the fire in the worlds biggest acrylic fiber factory in Yalova, the Brazilian fire in a nightclub killing hundreds in southern Brazil and the aftermath of the statements of Birgul Ayman Guler about the Kurdish issue. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All Turkish dailies covered the fire erupted at the world's largest acrylic fiber factory, located in Yalova province near İstanbul, on Sunday. "Fiber giant burned" headlined daily HURRIYET in regards to the fire that begun at the warehouse of the AKSA plant and lasted eight hours. There are no casualties reported in the fire.

Most of the Turkish dailies covered the nightclub fire in the university town of Santa Maria, Brazil early on Sunday. "Terror in disco" headlined Daily SABAH where at least 200 people are reported to have lost their lives and over 250 are wounded due to the band's pyrotechnics show set the building ablaze and fleeing partygoers stampeded toward blocked and overcrowded exits in panic.

Some of the Turkish dailies covered the divisions within the Turkish main opposition People's Republican Party (CHP) sharpening over Kurdish row following the racist statements of the MP from CHP Birgul Ayman. The CHP is trying to tackle internal turmoil following the resignation of a deputy with Kurdish origin, according to daily HURRIYET. "Elimination of Nationalists" headlined daily YENI SAFAK over speculations that Kilicdaroglu is planning to get rid of nationalists in party congress in February.
