Vile Plot or Smoking Gun? Turkey's PM Erdogan Hits Back at Corruption Claims

"An immoral montage that is completely false". That's how Turkey's prime minister has described an alleged phone recording where Recep Tayep Erdogan purportedly tells his son Bilal to get rid of millions in stashed cash. While Erdogan calls the video, which went viral on YouTube Monday evening, a "dirty plot", the opposition wants a full inquiry. With local elections around the corner, where does it all leave Erdogan and, more importantly, Turkey?
