Today is the continuation trial of journalists Erdem Gul and Can Dundar of Turkey’s Cumhuriyet newspaper. They face a double life sentence plus 30 years in jail after publishing a story which accused the government and president of arms shipments to Syrian Jihadists. The trial is causing alarm among Turkey’s western allies over press freedom. RFI's correspondent Dorian Jones met with Can Dundar who is editor in chief of Cumhuriyet.
