Summary: 

The Prime Minister is trying to ease tensions after Turkey’s president threatened the lives of Australians in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack. Tayyip Erdogan has been using footage of the mass shootings in campaign rallies ahead of next week’s Turkish election. The hardline Muslim president has now attacked the ANZACs and their ancestors.

According to the ABC, Erdogan is warning those with anti-Muslim views will return home in coffins like their grandfathers did after Gallipoli.

“Your grandparents came here… and they returned in caskets.

 
 

Have no doubt we will send you back like your grandfathers.”
