Satirical TV song about Erdogan sparks Turkey-Germany row

A song lampooning Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that was broadcast on a German public television satirical show has sparked a diplomatic spat between Berlin and Ankara, sources on both sides confirmed Tuesday. Turkey last week summoned Germany’s ambassador to protest the two-minute clip “Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan”, which ridicules the president, his alleged extravagant spending and crackdown on civil liberties.
