Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency says Turkey has blocked access to Twitter to prevent the broadcast of images of Monday's bombing in southeast Turkey that killed 32 people.
The agency Wednesday that the government was also trying to block Twitter users from calling for protests against the government for not doing more to prevent the bombing.
Officials had raised concerns that the bombing is part of a campaign of retaliation by the Islamic State group for a recent crackdown on its operations in the country.
In an intensified crackdown, Turkish officials say they have detained more than 500 people suspected of working with IS in the last six months. Officials say an operation this month netted 21 terrorism suspects in an investigation of recruitment networks in multiple parts of the country.
