Turkey launches probe into Erdogan cartoons

Turkish prosecutors launched a probe into Charlie Hebdo over the magazine's cartoons on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan amid increased tension with France, local media reported on Wednesday.

The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo featured a caricature of Erdogan drinking beer and engaging in inappropriate behavior, over which Turkey threatened to take legal and diplomatic action.

Tensions between Ankara and France, including President Emmanuel Macron, began after the beheading of French schoolteacher Samuel Paty by a suspected Islamist attacker earlier this month.
