ANKARA (Turkey) - A TURKISH newspaper says it has linked up with WikiLeaks to publish thousands of US diplomatic cables covering Washington's relationship with Turkey - the country from which the largest number of cables originated. Taraf said on Wednesday it reached a deal with WikiLeaks which had sought cooperation with the liberal newspaper.
