Istanbul bombing: civil society perspective

39 people were killed and at least 70 were injured when a gunman opened fire at a high-end nightclub in Istanbul in the first few hours of New Year’s Day 2017.

In a number of appearances on BBC World News and the Outside Source programme, Michael brought some context to the growing security problem in Turkey, a country under attack on multiple fronts.

But there is also a civil society perspective, he said, because few people in the country feel able to ask awkward questions of their superiors.
