Journalists Nedim Sener (C) and Ahmet Sik (facing camera, 3rd L) wave upon arrival at a courthouse in Istanbul March 5, 2011. A Turkish court has charged four journalists and a writer with involvement in an alleged plot to overthrow the government, but prosecutors said the detentions were not due to their journalism. On March 6, 2011, Sik and Sener, who have written investigative books about clandestine activities within the state were also jailed pending trial in a case which has raised the political heat in Turkey ahead of a June parliamentary election.
