Turkey recalls Egypt ambassador

Turkey's Islamic-based government had strongly backed Mr Morsi as an example for the Arab world of a democratically elected pro-Islamic leader and has strongly criticised his overthrow on July 3.
Tensions grew further following Turkey's criticism of the Egyptian military's move against Morsi supporters in which hundreds died.
Both countries announced late on Tuesday that they were recalling their ambassadors for consultations.
Turkey's ambassador to Cairo has been summoned by Egypt's Foreign Ministry recently over the Turkish criticisms.
