Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper that has played a prominent role in the French freedom of expression debate, has once again attracted international attention with a caricature of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan published on the cover of his latest magazine.

In the caricature, the Erdogan figure, dressed in trousers and brewing beer, reveals the buttocks of a woman dressed in an Islamic costume and exclaims, "Ooh, Prophet!".

Turkey accuses the French newspaper of "cultural racism".

The gap between Turkey and France has become inflamed in the wake of a teacher death in France in recent days.

The teacher was killed after he was shown in the classroom Charlie Hebdo's caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.
