ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan applied to the country's constitutional court on Friday to challenge the alleged violation of his and his family's rights by social media, broadcaster CNN Turk and other media said.

His government blocked Twitter and YouTube in March, drawing international condemnation, after audio recordings, purportedly showing corruption in his inner circle, were leaked on their sites. YouTube remains blocked.

Friday's media reports could not immediately be confirmed.
