The French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo publishes a caricature of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. That’s what the magazine announced on Twitter on Tuesday.
On the front of the new edition there is Erdogan sitting in a chair with a can in his hand. With his other hand, he lifts the garment of a woman wearing a headscarf. The woman’s buttocks are visible through this, on which the caricatured Erdogan ” Oh! The Prophet!” say. The cartoon is called “Erdogan, he is very pleasant in private”.
Erdogan : dans le privé, il est très drôle !

The publication is sensitive because of the increasing tensions between Turkey and France. Two weeks ago, Samuel Paty, a 47-year-old French history teacher, was beheaded by an 18-year-old Muslim boy. As a result, the French president, Mr Macron, made a strong statement. Macron also announced stricter action against”extreme Muslim organizations”. Erdogan shamed this and announced on Tuesday a boycott of French goods, because Macron was “hostile to Islam”.
