Turkey: Earthquake blamed on foreign powers

(Ankara) Yesterday, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck on the eastern side of the Aegean Sea, causing superficial damage to both Greece and Turkey.

The mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, naturally wearing his tin foil hat, has demanded an investigation of seismic ships belonging to other countries in the area.
“Now I think that this might be an artificial earthquake. I do not say it is certain but it is a very serious possibility, I say that it should definitely be investigated. Was there any seismic research ship sailing near the epicenter? If so, which country does it belong to?” 
It is not the first time that Gökçek has theorized about “artificial earthquakes” triggered by nefarious foreign powers. In February, he said quakes in the western province of Çanakkale could have been organized by dark external powers to destroy Turkey’s economy.
