On Tuesday, French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo unveiled the cover of its Wednesday edition, which featured a caricature depicting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seated in an armchair half-dressed, with a canned drink in his hand.

Some of the weekly's previous work lampooning the prophet was shown by Paty in a class on free speech, leading to an online campaign against him and the grisly murder before the start of school holidays on October 16.

"They are defamatory comments that are completely unacceptable, particularly against the backdrop of the horrific murder of the French teacher Samuel Paty by an Islamist fanatic", German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said. "Terrorism can never and should never be justified".

'I call on the moral and conscientious global community to speak out against this disgrace, ' the vice president said.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - The Turkish currency slid further Monday to an all-time low against the US dollar after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan challenged the United States to slap sanctions over his government's decision to test its Russian-made air defense system.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan weighed in on the statements by Macron, saying the French president disrespected millions of French Muslim citizens.

Wilders had shared a cartoon of the Turkish president wearing an Ottoman hat shaped like a bomb with a lit fuse on Twitter.

'I have a message for President Erdogan and that message is simple: In the Netherlands, freedom of expression is one of our highest values, ' Rutte said.

Erdogan also said on Saturday that Macron had a problem with Muslims and needed mental checks - a rebuke that caused France to recall its ambassador from Ankara.

Erdogan has a track record of using legal action against critics in Europe.
