Turkey extends emergency rule by three months
ANKARA - Turkey's parliament voted on Tuesday in favor of extending emergency rule by a further three months, effective from Jan. 19, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

Emergency rule, first imposed in Turkey after a failed military coup on July 15 and then extended in October, enables the government to bypass parliament in enacting new laws and to limit or suspend rights and freedoms when deemed necessary.
