French satirical weekly
Charlie Hebdo has
published a caricature of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the cover of the issue to be released on Wednesday.
The magazine announced this on Twitter on Tuesday.
On the cover of the new edition, Erdogan can be seen sitting in a chair with a can in his hand.
With his other hand, he lifts the garment of a woman wearing a headscarf.
The woman's buttocks can be seen through this, on which the caricatured Erdogan "Ooh! The Prophet!"
The cartoon is entitled: "Erdogan, he is very pleasant in private".
The publication is sensitive due to the mounting tensions between Turkey and France.
Last Friday, Samuel Paty, a 47-year-old French history teacher, was beheaded by an 18-year-old Muslim boy.
This because he had shown a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed.
As a result, French President Macron spoke out firmly.
"Samuel Paty was killed because the Islamists want our future and because they know they will never get it thanks to silent heroes like him," he said.
Macron also announced tougher action against "extreme Muslim organizations".
Erdogan shamed this and on Tuesday announced a boycott of French products, because Macron would be "hostile to Islam".
Republishing the cartoon of Mohammed
Five and a half years ago, on January 7, 2015, 12 people on the
Charlie Hebdo office were
killed in a terrorist attack.
The cause of the attack was the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
In September, in the run-up to the trial of suspects in the attack,
again published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, which previously prompted the Kouachi brothers to attack the editorial board.
"We will never go to sleep, we will never give up," said editor-in-chief Laurent 'Riss' Sourisseau at the time.
