Turkish PM says anti-Islam film 'provocation'

AFP , Friday 14 Sep 2012

A film mocking Islam that sparked protests across the Islamic world is a provocation against Muslims but should not be used as a pretext for violence, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.

"This is a strong provocation against our way of life," Erdogan said in the Ukrainian Black Sea resort of Yalta, adding that protests against the film should in no way be aimed at causing "violence or terrorism."
