Egypt Summons Turkish Envoy Over Erdogan's Comments

Egypt on Saturday summoned the Turkish charge d'affaires for the second time in a month to complain about comments by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan deemed insulting to the leadership in Cairo, Reuters reports.

In an interview with CNN, Erdogan repeated the phrase that caused offense last time, calling Egypt's president, former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, a "tyrant".
