Turkey's largest newspaper has published its first edition since being taken over by the state, with a string of pro-government articles.
The front page of the March 6 edition of Zaman bears an image of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and includes two articles about his planned visit to the site of a bridge being built across the Bosphorus and his reception to mark International Women's Day.
On March 4, police raided the offices of Zaman -- previously linked to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, Erdogan's most influential foe -- after a court ruled that the daily should now be run by administrators. The decision was reportedly taken at the request of a prosecutor investigating Gulen's movement on terrorism charges.
Police in Istanbul used tear gas, water cannons, and rubber bullets on March 5 to disperse some 500 demonstrators protesting the forceful takeover of the newspaper.
