Turkish Consulate in Zurich attacked by masked group

Zurich (Switzerland): A large group of masked people attacked Turkey’s Consulate in the Swiss city of Zurich late on Monday, officials said.

Asiye Nurcan Ipekci, Turkey’s consul in Zurich said the attackers painted “Kill Erdogan” on the walls of a nearby building and bus stop, Anadolu news agency reported.

No casualties were reported and there were only security staff inside the building.

This is not the first incident in Europe supporting violent attacks on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Ahead of Turkey’s April 16 constitutional referendum, a rally in the capital Bern featured a large banner saying “Kill Erdogan” and a picture of gun being pointed at the president’s head. (ANI)
