Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday called for a boycott of French goods over the country's response to a school teacher's beheading in Paris.
"Never give credit to French-labelled goods, don't buy them," he said in a televised speech. "I am calling to all my citizens from here to never help French brands or buy them."
A French teacher was beheaded by an Islamist in a Paris suburb on Friday for discussing Muhammad caricatures with his class. The knife-wielding attacker, identified as an 18-year-old immigrant, shouted "Allahu Akbar" at the scene of the gruesome killing, media reports say. The jihadi was shot dead after he charged at the police following the gruesome killing.
