The Turkish court banned on Wednesday coverage of any story about trucks carrying aid for Syria, belonging to the Turkish intelligence agency (MIT), that were "illegally" halted en route by the gendarmerie, it has been announced.
The trucks were stopped on the alleged grounds that they were loaded with ammunition in January 2014.
The court banned broadcasts in all forms, including written, visual and social media.
The state-run media watchdog, Radio and Television Supreme Council, or the RTUK, announced the Adana court's decision on its website and said that the ban would stay in place until a government probe into the incident had been concluded.
The trucks were stopped by Turkish gendarmerie teams in southern Hatay and Adana provinces in January 2014 despite a national security law forbidding such acts.
The Turkish Interior Ministry had said the trucks were carrying humanitarian aid for the Turkmen community in Syria.
The prosecutor and security officers who ordered the stopping of the trucks were later removed from their posts.
