Tensions as pro-Erdogan activists to rally in Germany

0

COLOGNE, Germany: Tens of thousands of supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan are planning to rally in the German city of Cologne on Sunday (Monday in Manila), as tensions over Turkey’s failed coup put authorities on edge. Since the attempted military power grab on the night of July 15, skirmishes have broken out between backers and opponents of Erdogan in Germany, home to Turkey’s biggest diaspora. On Sunday, up to 30,000 people are expected to answer a call to take to the streets issued by a pro-Erdogan group, the Union of European-Turkish Democrats (UETD), according to police.
