Game show vanishes amid Turkish graft scandal

Several thousand of civil servants gather in the city center to protest against corruption and the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara, Turkey, Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013. European officials on Saturday urged Turkey to handle a deepening corruption scandal in a transparent manner amid some concerns that the government was trying to stifle an investigation that has targeted people close to Erdogan. Erdogan this week reshuffled his Cabinet and fired key ministers after 24 people, including the sons of two former ministers, were arrested on bribery charges.
