Turkey in Turmoil (part 2)

Seen from outside Turkey, the mass turnout that accompanied the funeral of a 15-year old who fell into a coma during last June's Gezi Park protests is yet another nail in the coffin of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's hold on power. Yet despite a widening graft probe that's targeted his own son as well as several ministers, despite international outcry over Internet censorship and rising inflation, Erdogan's not going away. What's next for Turkey and what's the next move of its prime minister?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges and Priscilla Andrieu.

By François PICARD
