In Turkish orthography (according to my Teach Yourself Turkish book) c
has the same value as the j in English orthography.  If the newspapers
are passing on the correct Turkish spelling, the O in Ocalan's name
indicates a mid back rounded vowel. However, if they are simply ignoring
a dieresis over the O (just as we are forced to in ASCII) , then the
first vowel is mid front rounded.
