(CNN)The Turkish president says a journalist will pay “a high price” for publishing leaked video footage that purports to show the country’s intelligence agency sending weapons to Syria.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday called out the head of Cumhuriyet — a secularist pro-opposition newspaper — in a live broadcast for publishing the footage.
“The person who published this story as an exclusive story will, I believe, pay a high price for this. I will not leave him be,” said Erdogan, speaking to state broadcaster TRT. MORE
ISIS controlled all of Ramadi today after the last Iraqi security forces pulled out from a key military base on the west side of the city, the mayor and a high-ranking security official said.
The violence marks the latest in the struggle for Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province.
The city is just a few miles from an Iraqi army headquarters that ISIS blew up in March and 70 miles west of Baghdad. Ramadi is strategically located in the middle of Iraq’s Sunni Muslim heartland, which is largely controlled by ISIS.
