Turkey’s Erdogan urges French goods boycott amid Islam row – BBC News
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Turks to boycott French goods amid a row over France’s tougher stance on radical Islam.
In a televised speech, he urged world leaders to protect Muslims “if there is oppression against Muslims in France”.
Mr Erdogan has angrily criticised French President Emmanuel Macron for pledging to defend secularism against radical Islam.
It comes after a teacher was killed for showing Prophet Muhammad cartoons.
Samuel Paty was beheaded on 16 October by 18-year-old Abdullakh Anzorov outside Paris, after presenting the images to his pupils during a class about freedom of speech.
Mr Macron has paid tribute to Mr Paty, and said France “will not give up our cartoons”.
