Police swooped shortly before the Constitutional Court began hearing a legal case in which the governing AK Party is charged with trying to establish an Islamic state and could be closed, a move that might lead to an early parliamentary election. Ankara police said 24 people had been detained. General prosecutor has officially asked president Gul and Preime Minister Erdogan to step down. He supported that the governmental party precedes to actions that "hurm the secular state" and stated that it 71 people must not participate to a political party for 5 years.

    U.S. pop star Madonna and her husband, British film maker Guy Ritchie, are not planning to divorce, her spokeswoman said on Tuesday, denying media speculation that their marriage is ending. "There are no divorce plans," Liz Rosenberg, Madonnas publicist, said in a statement emailed to Reuters. Rumors that the London-based couple planned to split have been circulating for months, fueled most recently by reports that the singer had lined up Fiona Shackleton. Madonna, 49, and Ritchie, 39, married in December 2000 at Skibo Castle in northeast Scotland. They have a son, Roco and in 2006 Madonna applied to adopt David Banda, a boy from Malawi. Madonna also has a daughter, Lourdes, from an earlier relationship.
