CATALCA, TURKEY (Reuter) - Aziz Nesin, a prominent Turkish author, said he planned to try to publish an edition of Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses in Turkey.

His plan to bring out the book is likely to worsen relations between Tehran and Ankara, already strained by the murders of two secular journalists and an Iranian dissident by Muslim fundamentalists allegedly trained in Iran.
