ISTANBUL (AP) — Hackers have posted a database online that allegedly contains the personal information of nearly 50 million Turkish citizens in what is one of the largest public leaks of this scale.

The Associated Press on Monday was able to partially verify the authenticity of the leak. The entries include data such as national ID numbers, addresses, birthdates and the names of parents.
