Turkey upset at Vienna over child-sex warning message

A news ticker message at Vienna airport about under-age sex has resulted in a diplomatic summons by Turkey. Austria was told that Turkey’s image was tarnished by images shown on social media before the item was removed.

Turkey’s foreign ministry said Sunday, it had summoned Austria’s charge d’affaires to Ankara late Saturday, to protest the electronic headline displayed at Vienna’s Schwechat airport, which claimed: “Turkey allows sex with children under the age of 15.”

Images of the electronic ticker message were circulated on social media before the item – based on a report by the Austrian tabloid newspaper “Kronen Zeitung” – was removed at Ankara’s behest, said the Turkish news agency- Dogan.
