TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON JAN 30

Turkish dailies on Wednesday covered the massacre in Syria, pregnancy of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's wife and America not verifying news of the monkey Iran claims to have sent to space. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most of the Turkish dailies covered the bodies of 80 young people pulled out from the Quweiq river in Aleppo. "Assad's barbaric execution" headlined daily SABAH over the massacre where most of the men's hand were tied behind their backs and blood trail on their heads. The daily also added there were torture marks on the bodies and children were present among them.

Another story covered by most of the Turkish dailies was the pregnancy of Asma-al Assad, wife of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the 37-year-old, British-born mother of three. "The country is on fire, they are expecting a baby" headlined daily VATAN referring to the verified news of Asma al-Assad's pregnancy. Assad chose the most difficult time of his country to have a baby according to the dailies.

Lastly, some of the Turkish dailies covered the rejection of America to verify Iran's statement of sending a monkey to space, and it reaching an altitude of some 120 kilometres for a sub-orbital flight before returning its shipment intact. "USA did not believe Iran's monkey" headlined daily HURRIYET as U.S. spokesperson Victoria Nuland said, "I saw the photos of the poor monkey getting ready to go to space. However, I cannot verify the monkey, the launch or the monkey being launched."
