Post the recent incident with Turkish President Erdogan “hanging” in StockholmAnkara warned that relations with Sweden they can become “much more tense”. Now, Swedish newspaper Flamman organized a cartoon contest for the president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and more than 400 projects were sent.
The newspaper’s jury declared the winner a cartoon entitled “Erdogan Eating His People” by Henry Åström, inspired by “Saturn Eating His Children” by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya. Something that does not seem to have pleased Ankara at all and aggravates the already tense relations between Turkey – Sweden.
According to the Swedish newspaper, the competition caused great reactions around the world. The reaction of the Turkish media (among them the Sabah newspaper) was immediate, speaking of a new “scandal with a sketch, made by someone who has never been to Turkey in his life and who does not know Erdogan and Turkey».
