A group of Turkish demonstrators have been left red-faced after a video of them setting what they thought was a Dutch flag on fire circulated online. Social media users were quick to mock the group, claiming it was actually a French flag.
The men were reportedly protesting the Dutch government’s refusal to let Turkish ministers address a rally in Rotterdam on Saturday in the latest development in a diplomatic spat between the two countries.
The video shows a group of men gathered at Cumhuriyet Square in Samsun, in northern Turkey on Saturday. They douse the flag in lighter fluid and set it alight.
