Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday urged his compatriots to boycott French products amid an escalating row over comments made by his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in which he defended the right to publish caricatures of the prophet Muhammad.


Images of the prophet are considered deeply offensive by many Muslims and are widely seen as taboo in Islam. EFE-EPA
