Turkey’s Erdogan orders 10 ambassadors to get out

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to expel the German ambassador to Ankara, along with those of nine other countries, over their support for opposition figure Osman Kavala.

Erdogan decided Saturday to declare the ambassadors of 10 countries, including Germany and the United States, “persona non grata” for a joint statement backing the jailed Kavala.

The envoys’ highly unusual joint declaration last week said the continued detention of the Parisian-born philanthropist and activist “cast a shadow” over Turkey’s democracy and the judicial system.
