Ankara: Citing administrative measures, Turkey on Saturday blocked Wikipedia in its country. Turkey's Information and Communication Technologies Authority (BTK) said it had implemented the ban on wikipedia.Org.

"After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr. 5651, an administrative measure has been taken for this website," Turkey's Information and Communication Technologies Authority was quoted as saying.

No any particular reason, however, has been given behind the ban. Some people got access to the website via Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Earlier, the country witnessed a temporary ban on social media sites following the mass protests and terror attacks.
