The Turkish authorities condemn the publication of cartoons by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo on the country's President Tayyip Erdogan.

Earlier, Charlie Hebdo magazine, amid the crisis in relations between Paris and Ankara, placed Erdogan's caricature on the cover. In the picture, a half-naked Turkish president holds a can of drink with one hand and lifts the hem of a servant woman's dress with the other. The caption to the cartoon reads: "Erdogan is very playful in his private life.вЂќ
