By Ece Toksabay ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish police raided a magazine on Monday over a mocked-up “selfie” of a smiling President Tayyip Erdogan with the coffin of a soldier – an allusion to comments that families of soldiers killed by Kurdish rebels could be happy about their martyrdom. An Istanbul prosecutor’s office banned distribution of the latest edition of Nokta magazine and ordered raids on its offices over charges of “insulting the Turkish president” and “making terrorist propaganda”, after the cover was published online, the magazine said in a statement. The cover depicted a grinning Erdogan in shirt-sleeves taking a selfie, in the background a coffin draped in the red Turkish flag being borne along in state by soldiers.
