A satirical poem turns into an international scandal. At its center: the award-winning comedian Jan Böhmermann. Did he go too far with his parody of the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan?
The Turkish president has laid out the first official version of the investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia could face its worst crisis if the crown prince is linked to the killing.
Journalist Adil Yigit linked the deportation order to a protest he made against Turkey's president in Berlin. A lawmaker said Germany can not deport someone to a country where he may face torture or arbitrary arrest.
Officials say Adil Yigit, who protested at a joint press conference of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will receive a humanitarian visa instead. Yigit says it's a "trap."
Angela Merkel says she raised human rights issues with Recep Tayyip Erdogan — an issue where they can only agree to disagree. The Turkish president's visit to Berlin was met with protests from public and press alike.
