Third German town cancels Turkish rally, police say

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has slammed German communities for "aiding and abetting terror" after they scrapped rallies due to be attended by Turkish ministers advocating for the upcoming constitutional referendum in Turkey.

" They don't want Turkish leaders to campaign because they are working for "no" votes", Cavusoglu said.

"German officials say that when Turkish ministers come to Germany they must speak with German ministers".

Henk Van Bentham, the mayor of a district in Cologne, hit back at Turkish criticism of the ban, saying he feels "local authorities in a democratic country are being ridiculed", and it's "not doing any good for people of Turkish origin who like living in Germany".

"I also think that it was right of us to criticise any restrictions on press freedom".

On Thursday, local authorities blocked rallies by two more Turkish ministers, prompting a furious response from Ankara which promptly summoned the German envoy to protest.

Erdogan accuses an exiled cleric of masterminding the coup, describing his organisation as the FETO terrorist group.Turkey also complains that Germany and other West European countries give succour to militant leftists and PKK Kurdish militants.
