  • Who are the 'little green men' helping Ukraine's rebels?

    Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - The expertly armed, masked men in matching camouflage stripped of all insignia are tough, taciturn and tactically devastating. And according to President Vladimir Putin, they are not -- absolutely, categorically not -- elite Russian special forces.

The Twitter block was lifted earlier this month after the constitutional court ruled that it breached freedom of expression, a decision Erdogan has since said was wrong and should be overturned. YouTube remains blocked in Turkey.
